About Us :

BES Group of Institutions was founded by Sri B.L.LakkeGowda, (Spl.Deputy Commissioner) Retd., BES Evening college of Arts and Commerce was started as an evening section of the Day BES college in the year 1971 and it was only in the year 1984-85 it got its identity as BES Evening college of Arts and Commerce. Since then the evening college has been doing its best to help the employed youth to pursue their education. The college is located in a sprawling campus area of 4.4 acres with well designed concrete structure with a lot of greenery and lung space. It is located in the heart of the city on 16th main, 4th Block, Jayanagar, Bangalore and students working in any part of the city can very conveniently commute to and from the college at all times of the day and night. Keeping in mind the Vision Mission and motto of the college all students interested in pursuing their education, irrespective of class, age, caste or sex are given admission to the evening college. The college is affiliated to Bangalore University and Bangalore Central University and is also included under section 2(f) and 12 B of the UGC Act-1956.

Institutional Distinctiveness

  • The college has a very distinctive Vision and a corresponding Mission to implement it. The vision of doing service to the community is a laudable one. Though the students are largely employed, they come from very poor backgrounds and have taken to earning for their livelihood and maintenance of their families. It is often imperative for them to be in this situation and yet their thirst for knowledge and gaining an education is unquenchable. But due to circumstances, they are unable to pay huge amounts of tuition fees and here is where our college steps in to provide them with an education at a nominal cost. A survey of nearby colleges has revealed that our college has the most nominal fee structure.
  • The second distinctive feature is that the teachers group together to come to the aid of the needy and poor students by contributing to the ‘Poor Students Fund’ which is a fund raiser to meet the needs of the poor students. The teachers, by this display that they are in tune with the vision of the college.
  • Evening Colleges are not sanctioned NSS Unit by the Universities as the timings are conditions of the students are not conducive to it. But our college has started an NSS Unit totally self- financed and has conducted special camps and Jathas, and swachata programmes. This was done with the intention of providing an opportunity to the students of Evening College to do service, know the value of service and also build the confidence in them to face challenges of life by looking at more disadvantaged people than themselves. NSS has received tremendous response by the students and is growing in strength.
  • The teaching of the syllabus is only one part of the responsibility of the College. To provide an exposure to the students, experts from various fields are regularly invited for lectures, seminars and workshops. This becomes distinctive to our college because the college faces the challenge of engaging employed students who already have an exposure to the outer world. The knowledge base of the students is thus constantly being enriched. As a best practice, our own students who are proficient in certain areas of knowledge, take to teaching other interested students in special sessions outside the purview of the time-table.
  • Apart from this, the college promotes an environment of service where alumni, retired teachers come forward with a motive to help the needy students.
  • Celebration of National and State, and Regional festivals instill the culture of the land in the students. The college understands the importance of inculcating this sense of culture in the students to ground them in the reality of belonging to our roots.
  • To realise the mission, the college conducts a number of activities, guest lectures, seminars, competitions etc.

Best Practices

Title of the Practice
JNANA PRASAARA: KNOWLEDGE SHARING
Objectives of the Practice
  • This practice aims at dissemination of knowledge. There are many amongst our students who are well versed in certain areas of skill acquisition. Out of a motive of service , they come forward to teach others their skills.
  • This empowers them with increased confidence to perform everywhere.
  • Equips them with greater clarity about the subject.
  • Enables the students to gain competencies to be successful
  • Students who come forward to teach become role models for others and are an added source of inspiration
  • The college promotes benchmarking in achieving quality and creating an academic atmosphere.
The Context

Our college is an evening college where the students are largely working professionals. They work during the day and in the evening come to pursue their education. Their ambitions are varied like getting an increment, a promotion or a better job. But whatever be their reason, their goal is clear and defined. They want to further their education.

Most of the students come from economically and socially under privileged sections of the society. Earning a livelihood is an obligatory duty to most of them. They have families to support with many encumbrances.

In such situations, acquiring extra skills is a monetary burden and limits their scope of realizing their ambition. The college, with a sensitive understanding of the situation, steps in fill the gap between achieving their goals and acquiring the much needed skills. Apart from providing extra courses in college, IQAC encourages students who are proficient in certain areas of technical skill to come forward and help teach other interested students.

The Practice

JNANA PRASAARA: KNOWLEDGE SHARING

Quality in higher education is mandatory in India. This is done with a view to place higher education on a global platform. So, quality is an important benchmark in this process. Our college has adopted certain best practices which leverages our commitment to quality benchmarking. Jnana prasaara: Knowledge sharing is a practice in this direction.

This is a practice which involves teaching of Tally to students of both BA and B.com in the college. Tally, as is well known is a software which is popular as an accounting software used in India. It is widely used in small and medium enterprises. Most of our students belong to this category of work places and it helps them excel better with an acquisition of the software and its uses.

Learning this in professional outlets will cost a lot of money which our students are unable to meet. Hence, our college encourages students who have learnt Tally and are proficient in using it to teach other interested students.

Tally.ERP 9 incorporates aspects for business management solutions and GST software. It is an ideal combination of functioning, control, and customisability. It permits an interaction by the users in accounts related matters in a simple manner. A number of business functionalities like Accounting, Finance, Inventory, Sales, Purchase, Point of Sales, Manufacturing, Costing, Job Costing, Payroll and Branch Management along with compliance capabilities for Excise, TDS, TCS, and GST, can be dealt with smoothly.

This comprehensive software is available everywhere but it becomes unique in the context of our college in these ways:

  • Students teach this to other interested students
  • It is free of cost
  • It is offered by the college as a certificate course, where the students teach it and the management gives the certificate to students who take up the course.
Evidence of Success

This practice is very popular in college. As stated earlier, most of our students belong to socially and economically underprivileged sections of the society. This is in total alignment of our vision statement which declares that our college is committed to teaching such students and help in a holistic development of the students.

There is a growing demand for this kind of a practice. Students realize the importance and want to avail the benefits more and more.

There are instances where other students are motivated to perform similarly. Student-teachers are growing in number as they realize that their service is needed and appreciated by many in the college.

Because of the growing demand, Tally is repeated every year and students are enthusiastically taking part in the sessions. Looking at this growing trend, the management gives a certificate to all the students who have taken training in these sessions.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required

Though this best practice is very popular and useful, there are certain problems which need to be addressed.

As is stated, ours is an evening college. The students work during day time and attend college in the evenings.

The main problem is time constraint for them as they have work in shifts. Even though many are interested in doing these courses, they are unable to take it up as they have stipulated work schedules.

The principal, at times, contacts the work manager of the company in which the students work and requests to place them on a general shift so that it is convenient for them to pursue their studies.

Weekends are usually utilized for the conduct of programmes as many can participate.

Notes
  • This knowledge sharing can be extended to include other varied topics like entrepreneurial skills, vocational training programmes etc.
  • This best practice can be converted to an add on course to benefit students.

Title of the Practice
MARGADARSHI: CAREER COUNSELING AND STUDY TIPS TO SCHOOL CHILDREN OF BHARATH EDUCATION SOCIETY.
Objectives of the Practice
  • This practice aims at educating school children about career options available for their future.
  • It also aims to clarify the disciplines to be chosen to pursue their careers.
  • The practice is apt because college students who have a firsthand knowledge of work experience and educating themselves give career guidance.
  • Peer suggestions wield more influence on the children than teachers’ advice.
  • A spirit of service is inculcated in our students. They realize the need to help and guide school children to shape themselves better for a bright future.
  • A sense of responsibility is invested with our students when they realize the importance of their guidance to schoolchildren.
The Context

Higher Education today has evolved very clear parameters for the success of the students. One of the aspects it highlights is the necessity of framing goals and the methods to achieve it. This has to be started at the secondary school level so that the students are better equipped to set their goals and work towards achieving it.

Higher education in India places a lot of importance on research which helps to identify good teaching practices to expose the students to different streams of knowledge instead of narrowing it down to one or two more popular streams which the majority opt for.

In this regard, Our college has taken on the initial steps to achieve this. Our students go to the school run by our management in the campus and educate the students about different streams available after tenth standard and the career options available for each.

This is also coupled with certain easy study tips to ease the examination tension and stress of the students.

The Practice

Margadarshi: Career Counseling and Study tips to School children of Bharath Education Society.

This best practice involves students of our college from different streams, who are working in various companies in different capacities. These students go to the school and address the school children regarding different streams and subjects available after tenth standard. Though the school children are aware of these things, it matters considerably when students from our own institutions educate them and make them aware of the different career options citing personal examples. Peer suggestions and advice from people nearer their age group matters very much in moulding their sensibilities. In this regard, the counseling given by our students is well liked and is very much sought after by the school children. They eagerly await these interactions and are enthusiastic in their response.

These are conducted in three to four sessions during the midterm of the school. The school authorities and our college concur that this is the right time for the school children to make decisions regarding the choice of their future streams of study in Pre-university level. ( 11th & 12th)

Selected students from our college go well prepared with statistics and their own personal experiences in making career choices and counsel the children accordingly.

Further, our students also give study tips to children for better management of the study material. The following tips are highlighted:

  • Chunking the syllabus into small units for better management of the syllabus.
  • Framing a study timetable for efficient use of time for study.
  • Note making tips for easy grasp of the lessons on hand.
  • Easy revision methods.
  • • Simple meditation tips that our students have learnt in our college yoga sessions for improved concentration and easing of tension.
Evidence of Success

This best practice is very popular with high school children and they eagerly await the sessions by our students. The school authorities have informed us about the usefulness of the programme and the popularity it has achieved in the school. The school authorities have requested us to conduct the sessions more frequently because of its usefulness.

The students welcome the change from book oriented learning and make use of the simple techniques taught by our students.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required
  • The frequency of conducting these sessions cannot be increased because our students are working professionals and find it difficult to come during class hours of the school to talk to the students.
  • There is pressure on the school authorities to produce good percentage of results due to increasing number of schools in the neighborhood. This gets translated into the classrooms while teaching. Our students find it difficult to neutralize this in their sessions.
