Training & Campus


The Institute undertakes various training programmes for the trade union workers, organised and unorganised labour in rural and urban areas including child labour, women labour, and agricultural labour. It also undertakes training of the labour judiciary, officers of the labour commissionerate, and other departments employing labour in large numbers and public enterprises, to provide them exposure to labour laws, labour welfare, and labour relations etc. However, in organising the training programme, the Institute has its thrust on unorganised labour and rural labour. The objective is to help them unite and reap the benefits of various welfare programmes and to equip them with the required knowledge, appropriate skills and the right attitude to ameliorate their working conditions.


The Institute has started organising Rural/Urban camps or shibirs by moving out in remote rural and urban areas to benefit a large number of unorganised labour and to facilitate them to avail extension services of the Institute in their own surroundings. Shibirs are organised to create awareness and encourage leadership among them, to apprise them about the various labour welfare laws and schemes being implemented for their benefits and to guide them about the supplementary alternative employment avenues of earning available to them. The camps are organised in cooperation with the local organisations and administrative development machinery.
