CTAS GRADUATE STUDENTS PROFILE

The students of CTAS come from different regions of Bhutan and are from poor family backgrounds. Some are orphans and some come from broken families. Some students never attended school while some have completed their primary schooling

Since the inception of CTAS in 1999, as of December 2016 we have successfully trained 102 graduates (82 Boys & 20 Girls) from our school. These graduates are now professionals in their respective field of traditional arts and crafts and are all employed in the government, private firms and some have even started their own business enterprise. Further, from 2016, we have the first batch of graduates from the certificate level course ( 2-3 years) with 10 students (5 Girls & 5 Boys) graduated in 2016 taking the total number of graduates to 112. Apart from these graduates, there are also a number of students who have trained at CTAS for few years and left the school without fully completing their training program due to personal reasons. Even this group of students are today employed/hired by the handicrafts and contractors for their services.

We are very proud to present the following list of our successful graduates and we would like to share this achievement with all our supporters and prospective employers.

2005 I 2006 I 2007 I 2008 I 2009 I 2010 I 2011 I 2012 I 2013 I 2014 I 2015 I 2016
