The Origin

CLHRD - A Unique College

CLHRD is an institution administered by AIM INSIGHTS (Academy for Intense Motivation for Identifying Natural Skills, Independent Growth, Humane Thoughts and Strategies), Trust which brought up the cause of human resource development and has propagated a thesis on human resource development itself, which has been presented to several thousands of teachers, professors, social activists and corporate executives during the last quarter of a century. This makes CLHRD more rare than unique in its scope for the intellectual development of any aspiring scholar.

The College for Leadership and Human Resource Development, which offers the BHRD course, is the first of its kind in the country.

There are a few values we hold very dear to us. Essentially, we are people-centred and towards being realistic in it, we believe in hard work and mutual acceptance. All our courses and programmes are those that are participatory and developmental in nature that asks for a commitment that is creative that results in relating to one another.

CLHRD also offers service to several institutions regularly. There are as much as about nine thousand students who belong to this institution who get benefit because of their institution's association with CLHRD.

The most important programme of CLHRD has been 'Facilitator Certification Course in Human Resource Development'. Till now 118 such courses have been conducted. A single semester course, it was attended by a total of about 3,111 participants. These have been nominated by corporate companies, NGOs, Universities, colleges and schools. The trained Facilitators, in turn, have been offering training to their own personnel. An equally important training programme that has been offered to thousands of college students is'FEEL Employable', a training programme that empowers a participant with specific skills for employment.


From inception, AIM INSIGHTS added passion for work to that commitment. That is why it was able to provide more than two thousand people from corporate companies, government departments and corporations, non-governmental organizations, universities, colleges and schools with conceptual support and developed skills. In the process, it has made them more efficient, effective and successful.
