L&T aims at training the vast young population of the country in a manner that will aid their own growth and also contribute to the economy. It focuses on rural school dropouts. The programmes enhance their skills, and makes them employable.
L&T has established and operates eight Construction Skills Training Institutes (CSTIs) across the country. These institutes provide free formal and vocational training in construction skills for the large unorganised workforce in the sector. The skills imparted include bar-bending, formwork carpentry, masonry, scaffolding, welding, etc.
Through Project Neev L&T reaches out to specially-abled persons to make them self-reliant by training them in job skills.
Vocational training is also provided to women from low-income groups in the areas of tailoring, beautician skills, home nursing and food processing.
