Killexams : Liviu Tudor: IMMUNE Building Standard™️, implemented in educational buildings

The IMMUNE Building Standard™, developed to attenuate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, continues to extend its global reach that started in 2020. After offices, industrial and residential assets, the certification launched at the initiative of Genesis Property, a leading member of the European Property Federation, now also covers educational institutions buildings.

St. Catherine’s British School, an international school located in northern Athens, Greece, obtained the highest certification level of the IMMUNE Building Standard™, becoming the first certified educational institution in the world.

The school achieved the label IMMUNE™ – Resilient, scoring 5 stars out of 5, following the successful implementation of a large majority of measures included in the IMMUNE™ Assessment Scoring Index, an evaluation tool developed by Genesis Property. The building now has enhanced air filtration systems and benefits from strengthened sanitation in essential areas such as the main entrance, lifts, stairwells, door touch plates and handles. Moreover, automatic hand sanitizers were installed in the main entrance and lobbies on each floor.

“We are proud to receive this certification which emphasizes a key priority to enabling a healthy environment for our whole community, especially our staff and students. It is our responsibility to create a greener setting and future for our future generations and this certification validates our vision and mission in action”, stated Stuart Smith, the CEO and Headteacher of St. Catherine’s British School.

Established in 1956 on the grounds of the British Embassy in Athens, St. Catherine’s teaches over 1,300 students, aged 3 to 18 years, from 54 nationalities. The school is a COBIS Executive Member (Council of British International Schools), an HMC School (Head) and an IBO World School (International Baccalaureate). St. Catherine’s British School has outstanding teaching and recreational facilities, including a 350-seat theater, state-of the art science laboratories, a design technology Fablab and much more. Moreover, the classrooms are equipped with interactive smart board technology and Wi-Fi is available throughout the entire school.

”This new milestone for IMMUNE Building Standard reflects a strong commitment in creating healthier built environments for the future and proves the versatility and adaptability of the standard. We support safe education and believe that it is our responsibility to engage and unlock the potential of future generations. Achieving the highest level, 5 stars out of 5, St. Catherine’s demonstrates the commitment to transform the educational institution into the best place for children to nurture their innovative spirit and creativity”, said Liviu Tudor, founder of Genesis Property and president of the European Property Federation.

IMMUNE™ is based on a practical investment in a Healthy by Design System (HbDS), which empowers building operators to verify and adjust the condition of the building to a healthy performance level, and thus providing occupants with the space and confidence for a healthy experience.

Every IMMUNE™ certified building incorporates advanced technologies, specialized equipment, and dedicated personnel such as an IMMUNE™ Steward, to manage the building’s operations and health parameters, as recommended. The standard is based on an IMMUNE™ Assessment Scoring Index comprising 130+ measures recommended for implementation in buildings that include technical solutions for architectural engineering, technology, and design.

An independent authorized building assessor performs the evaluation and recommends a property to become IMMUNE™ – certified by the Healthy by Design Building Institute with one of the three labels: Strong (3 stars), Powerful (4 stars) or Resilient (5 stars).

Killexams : Without India Inc’s help, we can’t fix our education system

It is that time of the year when millions of young Indian boys and girls, as well as their anxious parents and families, spend sleepless days and weeks worrying about the future. I am talking about the annual pandemic otherwise known as the great Indian Board exam and college admission jamboree.

With more than 1.5 million schools and more than 250 million students, India is home to the largest school system in the world. Much has been written about the quality of education on offer in this gargantuan, if creaky structure, but the fact is that a significant number do make it all the way through the entire school system to tackle the final barrier — the Class XII exams, conducted by national boards of education like the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Council of Indian School Certification Examination (ISC), as well as various state boards of education.

While numbers for CBSE (about 1.6 million students appeared for the 12th Board exam this year) and ISC (around 100,000) are easier to come by, those for the various State boards are not easily available. However, various estimates put the total number of students appearing for the 12th class board exams at over 14 million. This means that millions of Indians — because in India, as in large parts of Asia, the ‘make or break’ 12th exams involve the entire family, not just the hapless students)  — have already undergone months and even years of trauma, tension and anxiety.

The 12th exam results have just come out and a remarkably high percentage (over 90 percent) have actually cleared the hurdle. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning of a long and even more tense journey before these millions of young men and women, all statistically already part of India’s so-called ‘demographic dividend’, having reached the UN Population Fund’s working age classification of 15-64 years, actually become productive, employed and earning members of society.

That is because getting past the 12th class board exam is only the first hurdle. There are many more barriers to pass before they get a scarce seat in a college and an even tougher battle after that to get a post graduate or professional degree and even tougher scramble after that to actually land a job.

India’s gross enrolment ratio — defined as the percentage of population in the eligible age group (18-23 in this case) enrolled in tertiary education — is a little over 27 percent, according to last available estimates. A bunch of researchers, including the vice chairman of India’s apex regulatory body for higher education, the University Grants Commission, have argued in a accurate paper that the Eligible Enrolment Ratio (EER), defined as the percentage of eligible students — those who have qualified in the 12th class examination — enrolled in tertiary education as a more suitable measure. According to the study, India’s EER in 2017-18 was almost 65 per cent, comparable to the European and advanced economy averages.

But that still means that 35 percent missed out — many due to economic compulsions as they simply cannot afford to defer earning any longer, but also owing to the fact that there are more students seeking admission to college than there are seats available.

India is home to the world’s third largest tertiary education system, with more than 1,000 universities and nearly 35 million students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and professional programmes. But the difference between having the second largest school system and the third largest university system is much more than what the one spot difference in rankings suggests. Competition for college seats is intense. With marks inflation in the board exams — more than 135,000 students scored over 90 per cent in this year’s CBSE 12th exam alone — school leaving marks are becoming increasingly irrelevant.

There is now a perfect alphabet soup of entrance exams that students have to clear to join college, the latest being the newly revamped Central University Entrance Test (CUET) mandatory to get into one of India’s 45 Central universities. Much has been written about NEET (the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for admissions to medical and dental degree programmes, which saw 1.87 million students vie for a little over 91,000 MBBS and nearly 27,000 BDS (dental) seats but the admission test for engineering is equally brutal JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) for top tier engineering colleges like IITs and NITs saw more than 875,000 aspirants at the first stage (there is a second, advanced test for getting into IITs proper!).

But these are the biggies. There are six other admission tests besides JEE by various groupings of engineering colleges. There are 10 different entrance exams besides NEET for medical. There are eight different entrance tests for management courses. Even hotel management has as many as nine different sets of entrance exams for admission!

Clearly, the education system is broken. The multiplicity of entrance exams point to the increasing failure of the Senior Secondary Certificate qualifying the holder for even admission to a college, leave alone landing a job. The millions of students appearing for competitive exams for jobs points to the failure of a bulk of the tertiary education system to produce employment-ready degree holders.

Worse, the years spent in the pursuit of largely worthless degrees (a famous NASSCOM survey found that only around 7 per cent of engineering graduates were employment-ready) means that India loses a sizeable chunk of working age population during the tertiary phase — a period when they are at their physical and mental productivity peak.

What can be done? For starters, India Inc must give up insisting on pointless qualifications for giving jobs. A 12th certificate, along with a year of focussed skill development training should be enough to meet the entry level requirement in most general admin, sales and marketing jobs. Likewise, an engineering degree is not required for basic shop floor jobs. Ditto for coding.

Since Indians have a transactional attitude to education — degrees are sought not for learning but to help land a job — once the path to a job is eased, the pressure on the tertiary system will ease. This means more resources can be focused on fewer people to enhance quality for higher order skills, while employers can quickly find talent with basic skills for other jobs. This will help solve India Inc’s talent shortage, Improve our skills quotient and hopefully reduce trauma for students and parents.

Contact: Harriet Laird

STARKVILLE, Miss.—As prospective college students continue to navigate admissions and enrollment processes in a relentless and lingering pandemic, Mississippi State continues its student support into the new year with testing waivers.

Students applying to MSU’s Graduate School will have the GMAT and GRE tests waived in many of the university’s on-campus and online programs. Also, those applying for entrance into many of the College of Education’s teacher training programs or working toward teacher certification will have testing waived as defined by the Mississippi State Board of Education.

MSU Provost and Executive Vice President David Shaw said, “We hope the waiver of these testing requirements gives prospective students one less thing to worry about as we look to the start of the new year. Our faculty and staff are looking forward to welcoming students as they begin academic programs in 2021.”

Enrollment in MSU’s Winter Session runs through Dec. 2, and the last day to register for the 2021 Spring Semester is Jan. 13.

MSU’s Graduate School program coordinators are available to answer questions specific to fields of study within the university’s eight colleges. Students can visit to find these coordinators for each program.

For students coming to MSU from countries where English is not the first language, the Test of English as a Foreign Language—TOEFL—or the International English Language Testing System—IELTS—still will be required and results are accepted up to five years from the test date. The university is currently considering the addition of the Duolingo Test of English proficiency as an alternative to TOEFL and IELTS.

All other requirements still need to be met for Graduate School admission and can be found at Staff are available to answer questions via telephone at 662-325-7400 or email at

Executive Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School Peter Ryan said, “Mississippi State is very mindful and very sensitive to the stress current and prospective students continue to experience during COVID-19, and we’re extending these test waivers to help reduce any anxiety or worry.”

For prospective College of Education students, waivers include both traditional (undergraduate) and non-traditional (graduate) teacher education programs and approved traditional or non-traditional educator or administrator preparation. The licensure exams have been waived for the following MSU programs: Elementary Education; Secondary English, Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Social Studies Education; Special Education; Music Education; Physical Education; School Administration; School Counseling; School Psychology; Master of Arts in Teaching-Secondary; and Master of Arts in Teaching-Special Education.

“We’re encouraging our teacher interns to take the licensure exams if they are considering working in other states because we don’t know every state’s requirements,” said Donna Shea, director of Clinical/Field-Based Instruction, Licensure and Outreach.

The educator preparation program admission testing requirement for teacher education, which includes the ACT/SAT requirement or the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators examinations, has also been waived. Grade Point Average (GPA) and all other criteria for MSU program admission remain in effect.

Shea said, “Students are being admitted under the waivers, but traditional route students should keep in mind that they have to provide a full application for a standard educator’s license by Dec. 31, 2021, or they will have to obtain passing scores on all licensure exams before the Mississippi Department of Education will issue their license. Traditional route students should also note that they must submit a full application for a standard educator’s license by Dec. 31, 2023 or they must retroactively meet the ACT/Praxis Core/SAT admission requirement before MDE will issue their license.”

Killexams : Food quality-analysis training for Hospitality students will make them employable For equipping students of hospitality management with technology to analysing food quality and standards, the Institute of Hotel Management (IHM), Bhubaneswar, is set to focus on this long-overlooked aspect by providing short-rider courses.

The UG, PG final year students of the institute will be trained in testing and auditing food quality through one-month-long certification courses.

The institute has signed an MoU with the Sattvik Council of India (SCI) and is set to open India's first ‘Sattvik Centre of Excellence’ at the campus. Through this collaborative agreement, five food analyst skill development, short-term courses namely Lead Auditor Program (LAP), Internal Auditor, Sattvik Quality Management, Sattvik Consciousness, Vegetarian Friendly Railway Services Management (VFRSM), are rolled out.


You have successfully cast your vote

Catching with industry’s trend

“Students pursuing hospitality management courses are trained in cooking and imparted skills to efficiently execute supervisory responsibilities. However, as per the latest industry trend, the hospitality sector is likely to move beyond merely food preparation and its presentation. Now, it is shifting toward food certification, which provides details of a food product’s nutrient source and quality management system based on the scientific as well as Vedic principles,” says Bhupesh Kumar, principal, IHM, Ranchi.

Food certification is gaining prominence at the global level as the consumers have specific demands with specific labels such as halal food, Jain food and kosher food. In India, the trend is picking too and students need to be trained for testing and evaluation of vegetarian food products to work as food auditors or food quality analysts.

Booster steps

Aiming to interconnect local and international markets as well as bridging the gap between demand and supply of auditors of the Industry, SCI has a plan to achieve these targets. “The idea of representing the whole journey from growing food to presenting it on the platter is the new form to acquire customer satisfaction in the hospitality industry. We need to train students to get food standards and quality control, food toxicology and advancement taking place in food science and its applications,” says Abhishek Biswas, SCI, founder.

Mentioning the mission’s expansion plan, Biswas says, “By next few months, we will set up Sattvik Center of Excellence at Gujarat-based Auro University. Under this, Market Friendly Incubators (MFI’s) will be facilitated to promote vegan research, and innovation will be provided.” He further added that a course module named ‘Sattvik Quality Management’ is also running at Shri Vishwakarma Skill University, Haryana, for training students in quality control measures of agricultural products.

Job prospects

Students pursuing food quality certification courses will have added skills and will be more employable. Kumar says, "Hospitality sector is drifting away from the service sector. Now , the emphasis is more on producing professionals having expertise in food analysis and microbiology.”
