Ensured payment of fee was least concern for students
Just like everything else, the education system of the country underwent a sea change during the pandemic affecting students and staff alike. Fibre2Fashion spoke to few fashion institutes about the support they provided to their students and faculty during these unforeseen times.
We faced lots of emotional tantrums from students—some faced family issues and some lost their jobs. We made it a point to be available for them and support them emotionally. We also organised motivational counselling sessions and played online games to encourage them. We initially reimbursed the staff salary for a few months and gradually cut down on the non-teaching staff, which was a tough decision. We also had to rework our rental agreements and came up with better and feasible options. We did not stop our students’ learning process even if they weren’t able to pay their balance fees.
