IOT’s activities in the education space are aimed towards:
- Job-oriented training at Trade Training Centres built and operated by IOT near its sites and terminals to enable Indian youth to be employable in relevant Technical Trades and skills.
- Special focus on encouraging education at the grass roots by supporting rural schools in terms of infrastructure and learning aids.
- Supporting education for the girl child through scholarships to deserving girl students and to institutes that provide special training in vocational skills to women.
Currently, IOT operates the IOT Aatmiyata Trade Training Centre through its group company IOT Anwesha, in Vadodara, Gujarat. The centre trains students from the rural areas around Vadodara in key trade skills such as welding, fabrication, carpentry and electrician.
The Centre is registered under the Modular Employment Scheme (MES). Students who appear for this examination are certified by the Ministry of Labour & Employment through the National Council for Vocational Training.
We have also completed numerous projects aimed at providing educational aids and infrastructure to students in the government schools around our site and terminal locations.
Since 2011, IOT has been sponsoring the education of girls through the India Student Educational Aid Foundation (ISEAF) in Goa.
