Essential Skills

One of the crucial aspects of skill building programs at LPF is the Essential Skills.
These Essential Skills consists of Self Defence, Health Awareness, Time Management, English
Communications and many more.

I attended the Self Defence program. This program will help
me and my fellow scholars a lot. The Trainer taught us about
facing our fears and how to use logic when going through a
difficult situation.

Technical/ Functional Skills

The LPF Scholars taught technical/ functional subjects that are in sync with current industry trends like Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Brain Disorder Syndrome, Machine Learning etc.

I had attended a Machine learning program conducted by
Komal Ma’am. It was very interactive. We learned about
machine learning, its importance, evolution, examples, types
and approach. We learned about IoT, Raspberry PI model,
actual infrared sensor and temperature sensor.

I am lucky to have the opportunity to conduct the Basics of
Machine Learning Program, multiple times. This is my 6th
program, as a part of the ‘Give Back’ to LPF

my knowledge with the LPF Scholars and give them a chance
to learn something new and exciting.

Mentoring LPF Scholars

In today’s age, guidance from Industry Experts and Senior Leaders as Mentors play a great role in developing the work-based skill sets of LPF Scholars.

Many of the Leaders/ Managers from LPF’s Corporate CSR Partners take the initiative of mentoring our Scholars through online mentoring platforms and few through face to face mentoring sessions.

The Leaders guide them, share their stories and experiences and help them understand the corporate world. Senior Corporate/ HR Leaders has also helped our Scholars get good grades and get placed in reputed organizations.

When I was chosen as a Mentee, I wanted a mentor who could guide me and help me make better choices.
My Mentor was there for me when I was torn between continuing my studies or studying for my UPSC exams. His guidance helped me to pursue my degree which will help me get a job and take care of my family.
He is the next person I would go to for advice after my parents.

Sanika, LPF Scholar (LILA Girl) 2016

Sanika's Mentor is a senior leader in a big IT Company. From the beginning, he was jovial. He would sit through their sessions, listening to Sanika talk about her academics and her desire to appear for the UPSC Exams. He guided and motivated her.
Thanks to his mentorship, Sanika is now pursuing her Engineering and preparing for her UPSC Exams parallels.
Industry Exposure

Through Industry Exposure visits offered by LPF’s Corporate CSR Partners and partnered institutes, the LPF Scholars can understand and learn the operations, technology, production and management of an organization. LPF Scholars visit the shop floor/ plant / corporate offices of these organizations, get to see the production/ assembly line, varied functions of the organization and interact with leaders.

This real-time experience builds the confidence of LPF Scholars and adds immense value to their overall experience.

The visit allowed me to learn about new
technologies. I especially enjoyed learning about
robotics. We also had a chance to watch the Kuka
Robot in action.

Utkarksha, LPF Scholar (LILA Girl) 2015


Our partners play a key role in shaping the future of our LPF Scholars. Many of our partners have offered internship and placement opportunities to our LPF Scholars.

I feel extremely fortunate to have had an opportunity to work as an
Intern in such a reputed company. I had the privilege to work and
study about 'Electrical part fitment in a car model and their ECOS
process'. It was a great learning experience.
