True to our vision of skill development for all, we established a series of Skill Training Centres with the aim of training 1 million youth. The objective was to reach out beyond the conventional trades and provide instruction in a host of emerging avenues including hospitality, customer relations and sales, IT-enabled services, electronics and construction. Market linkages were established to ensure the employment of all trainees. As a part of our strategy to train and empower the underprivileged with permanent skills, thus enabling them to earn their livelihood, we established Employability Linked Vocational Training Centres under the banner of DLF LIFE (Learning Initiative For Employment).
True to our spirit of innovation, we ensured that these centres reached out beyond the conventional trades and provide instruction in a host of emerging avenues including hospitality, customer relations and sales, IT-enabled services and construction. For most of the trainees undergoing training, getting employment was a matter of survival and corporate handholding in honing skills and providing job opportunities was viewed with great respect and value. Trainees at these centres largely comprised rural unemployed youth and those from underserved areas. After successful completion of training, the trainees were provided employment assistance for absorption into suitable vocations. The programme was carried out in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Delhi with 50 skill training centres set up across the nation. Over 52,000 youth received training under the programme and 37,500 were provided employment through this initiative. The trainees have been placed with leading corporate and industry brands including Future Group, ITC, Ashok Leyland, Reliance, ICICI Bank, Mahindra, Tata Teleservices and Hindustan Lever, to name but a few.
This initiative also led to the creation of 200 Master Trainers which benefitted the entire skill training ecosystem.
In addition to the skill training centres, the Government recognising our initiative, partnered with DLF Foundation to establish 7 Robotics Training Centres and one E-learning Centre in Gurugram to supplement formal education. This initiative was launched by the Chief Minister of Haryana. While the Robotics Skill Centres benefitted 15,000 students, the E-learning laboratory benefitted 8000 girl students.
The DLF Life Skill programme had centres across the country.
