Guiding Principles

This policy primarily states that

·        We at Aptech encourage all learners to maintain 100% Attendance and Punctuality in all sessions. The benefits of doing so will be explained to the learners during the induction process on the first day of the training program.

·        To encourage student attendance and punctuality, a student reward policy is in force, wherein overall outstanding performance, attendance and punctuality are the key criteria.

·        The attendance and punctuality of learners will be constantly monitored and learners who arrive late by up to 15 minutes will be verbally requested by trainers to adhere to the session schedule. Such a lateness will be marked as L1 for the purpose of calculating punctuality of the learners.  

·        In case of lateness beyond 15 minutes, the learner will be verbally requested by the trainer to adhere to the schedule for the first time. In case of repeat instance of such lateness the learners will be given verbal warning, which will be recorded in the file and also in case of such consecutive lateness (2 times or more) or repeat lateness of 4 times or more will be reported to the employer via email and/or by phone.

·        In case of a repetitive lateness the learner will also be counselled by the Academic Head/ General Manager with benefits of punctuality in the class.

·        Absence in class for 3 consecutive classes will also be reported to the employer or the sponsor.

·        Learners who are most punctual and have more than average performance will be intermittently rewarded and appreciated in front of peers to encourage others to follow the inculcate similar habit.

·        The lateness and absence of learners will also be reflected in their overall performance in the following manner:

                           I.          Lateness from 5 – 15 minutes will be recorded as L1

                          II.          Lateness from 16 – 30 Minutes will be recorded as L2

                        III.          Lateness beyond 30 minutes will be recorded as L3

For calculation of the learners’ marks for attendance, which has 10% weightage in the overall internal performance, absence and lateness both will be considered (Overall Punctuality will be considered).

·        The rewards for Attendance and Punctuality shall also be guided through the Aptech learners Rewards policy.
