The LABS process begins with a livelihood mapping exercise, which gives an idea of an area’s employability potential, based on the local economy, culture, natural resources, labor market and industrial profile. Courses for the local LABS centre are determined in consultation with industry professionals.
After mobilizing the aspirants for the LABS program, they are administered an ‘interest inventory’, which helps in identifying the courses most suited for them. After going through a life skills-oriented induction program, the aspirants undergo classroom training, which includes on-the-job training and Communicative English.
An Individual Youth Development Plan (IYDP) monitors the aspirants' personality development through the course. They are finally put through a ‘Work Readiness Module’, which teaches them to prepare their resumes, face interviews, cope with workplace-related issues, and balance their personal and professional lives.
