NIAS-supported Advanced Learning Centres (ALCs) have been set up to provide early mentoring to school children who demonstrate high learning ability and exceptional self-motivation to realize big ideas in life. The programme seeks to nurture students from a young age and help them grow into responsible, high impact individuals, as experts in their fields.
At ALC, children develop knowledge and skills in a wide range of multi-disciplinary areas. They also work to develop in-depth ability in their chosen areas of interest through mandatory project work, which is showcased to help them find expert mentors in the field.
ALC sessions are conducted for 3-5 hours on weekends.
Currently, three Advanced Learning Centres are operational, in Bangalore and Hyderabad. New centers are being added this academic year.
