Event Report: CCPP workshop stresses on employability skills
The Center for Criminology & Public Policy (CCPP) is India’s first-of-its-kind think tank, specializing in crime and justice. We seek to improve the quality of public life by promoting knowledge-based policy-making and practice at the national level. Further information can be accessed at www.ccppindia.org.
While CCPP care about your future and your career, there are, indeed, some powerful reasons which inspired this workshop.
First – over the last couple of months, we received a large volume of emails from under-graduate students across different educational backgrounds, requesting us to apprise them of the job opportunities in criminology. In responding to those queries, we observed that even as the students were satisfied with the given information, there was a genuine curiosity among them to know about the universities that offered this course, and essentially, which one of those would fulfill their scholarly interests. This made us realize that, a sizeable number of students are interested in pursuing criminology, and perhaps, by conducting a workshop we can educate them in a more systematic and informed manner.
Second – we see a jarring gap between career expectations of the students from a criminology course and the realities of the labour market. Due to this, many students simply deviate to some other field, or end up doing a job where their skills and knowledge are not applicable. This can be avoided, if the students are made aware of the prospective job market, not to mention the relevant skills set, before joining the master’s program. Through the workshop, this is exactly what we intend to do – give them valuable insights into various suitable careers, and guide them on what it takes to achieve their career goals.
Third – there are so many career–offerings within criminology that are not only rewarding but also lucrative. Yet, many students hesitate to explore those options because they do not have adequate knowledge about it. The same is the case with the parents. That’s why we thought that organizing a workshop will equip the students with necessary information and idea about the subject.
Fourth – at the university level, the faculty members are expected to do several duties, of which a large amount of time is devoted to teaching, research & extension, and administrative support. Due to this preoccupation, the departments of criminology are not being able to commit time to advise the students about career pivots, resume and cover letter reviews, interview practice and more. It is precisely in order to meet these needs of the students that we are organizing this workshop.
Doing so, will serve complementary role to criminology departments across India.
This workshop is India’s one-of-a-kind event which is held by a professional organization of criminology and criminal justice. Our course module is based on a national survey that identified the needs of employers across different sectors, including the difficulties in hiring criminology graduates. These key findings combined with rich and varied experience of our speakers makes this workshop more contemporary and relevant.
We hope this workshop will provide you the tools and resources to unlock your potential, as you graduate from or pursue your masters’.
This workshop is intended for students who are enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or Mphil programme with a study focus in Criminology, and other related fields (including but not limited to police science, law, forensic science, security management, psychology, sociology, political science, social work, statistics, history, etc.,). If you have already graduated with a university degree, you may apply for this workshop within one year after graduation.
Alongside this, anyone who is interested in or planning to break into criminology is strongly encouraged to attend this workshop. Be sure that you’ll always find opportunities for career in this field – regardless of your background and interests.
