Project Insight Plus is an annual student enrichment programme of The Assam Tribune conducted in association with Headway. As part of this project, career workshops titled �Insights to Career Building� are conducted at various schools of Guwahati. So far, such workshops have been conducted at six schools and colleges, while a few more educational institutions will be participating in November.
Students and school administrations have found the workshops extremely useful, especially the question-answer sessions where students seek answers to their various queries.
Headway is a literary and education and education consultancy firm imparting �listening, speaking, reading and writing (LSRW)� skills and career counselling skills to students and women. The aim of Project Insight Plus is to complement the knowledge of children and youths with real world life skills. The entire project revolves around four key areas: language skills, transferable skills, study strategies and performing arts.
