It was not the idea of the CORE to repeat in a mechanical way what other institutions both government and private, were doing in the field of education. Realising the fact that the development of the State of Kerala and the country as a whole can forge ahead by creating a strong knowledge base the CORE thought of a few innovative programmes particularly in emerging areas of knowledge. In a short period CORE could attract the attention of ambitious students, discerning parents and the government.
In the present context of downsizing the government organisations like CORE have a vital role to play in supplementing the efforts of the government and see that educational endeavours are not slackened. CORE has been able to gather a number of educationists, senior academics and researchers to push our programme forward in full force. Education, Training, Orientation and Research are the four areas in which the CORE has been concentrating all these years. Oral teaching, distance education, holiday and vacation programmes are the modes that CORE has adopted.
