Civil Aviation Apprenticeship | Karachi High School

Civil Aviation Authority Apprenticeship programme
Karachi, May 30, 2008: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will launch a apprenticeship training programme to impart technical education in the field of aviation to youths at its training institute in Hyderabad.

Established in 1982 under the aegis of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the Civil Aviation Training Institute (CATI) provides training in the field of Air Traffic Services, Aviation Management & Administration, Rescue & Fire Fighting Services, Electronics Engineering, Communication Operations and Electromechanical Engineering.

CATI Principal Mujahid Islam Khan told a team of journalists visiting the institute that the apprenticeship programme would be launched within a fortnight and candidates would be selected under the quota system from among the applicants coming from the entire country.

He said that a proposal had been sent to the government for approval of stipends for the candidates.

He said that the CAA was working on a plan aimed at attaining the status of academy for the CATI. The Authority was in touch with the Sindh governor and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in this regard, he added.

Spread over an area of 100 acres, the institute has imparted training to 10,406 people, including 504 foreigners, 723 candidates from the corporate sector and 362 officials of the armed forces, over the past 26 years.

Mr Khan stated that as part of its restructuring programme, the CAA was also planning to generate revenues by offering courses to foreigners on a commercial basis. "People from various countries want to come here for training because such training in the US and Europe is very expensive," he said.

'Sindh govt to improve standard of education'
Karachi: Around 7,700 government schools have been closed down in Sindh, while the ones functioning are in doldrums but efforts will be made to bring about educational reforms in Sindh, said Pir Mazhar ul Haq, Minister for Education and Literacy, Government of Sindh, at the annual prize distribution ceremony of Sindh Madressatul Islam (SMI) School/College on Thursday.

Haq said that Benazir Bhutto provided the people with five Es - Employment, Education, Energy, Environment and Equality and assured the people that the new government's education policy will be completed soon after the budget. He said that the preliminary work had already been done in this regard.

When asked about the obsolete syllabi being taught in schools and colleges, Haq said a committee has been formed to assess the current syllabi and to propose improvements.

Replying to a question he said "there are regulations for private schools but we cannot fully implement them." Cooperation is required from private sector schools and things can be simplified based on mutual understanding, he added.

The Principal of SMI, Lt Col. (R) Taj Muhammad Memon informed Haq that a part of the SMI land (allocated for a hostel) has been occupied by the rangers. The minister asked the SMI administration to send details of the issue.The provincial minister also announced a donation of Rs0.5 million for SMI.

Congratulating parents and teachers for the outstanding performances of their children in education and extra curricular activities, the minister said the teachers alone cannot educate their pupils unless parents also cooperate.

Speaking on the occasion, Nisar Ali Afandi, one of the guests, hoped that the new minister will work for the betterment of SMI and the Sindh education sector. Afandi announced a donation of Rs0.3 million for the SMI.

Earlier, the children performed national songs, tableau and dramas after which the Chief Guest distributed prizes to students who performed well in the extracurricular activities. The News
