Tata Housing has been providing people with employability skill development training and entrepreneurship development training in partnership with various non-government organizations (NGOs), government institutions and professional bodies. We understand that training is just a means to create sustainable livelihood, and in this regard we just not train, but monitor, motivate and handhold to ensure that people get actual employment-self-employed or wage employed.
Some of our partners, under this initiative, include Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India, Don Bosco Tech Society, NIIT Foundation, Human Development Foundation and Udyogwardhini etc. Our training in construction related trades include masonry, carpentry, bar bending, construction supervisor, RCC etc.
We do also provide training to unemployed youth in non-construction job oriented trades such as computersand retail sales etc.

Under SAMARTH, during the year 2012-13, a total of 869 persons (including 500 SC/ST persons) have been provided with skill development training under various vocational trades.
