About TeamLease Skills University

TeamLease Skills University (TLSU) envisions striving towards workforce productivity, socioeconomic development and social harmony through educational, training and research programs. While formulating its operational model, TLSU has contemplated on the socioeconomic context of Gujarat, the exigencies of the globalized competition and suitability of tertiary education varieties. TLSU seeks to address the gaps in Indian higher education system in relation to curricular irrelevance, graduate unemployability, low esteem for skill based programs and apathy to the informal workforce. Respecting the spirit of national documents in the higher education area, TLSU holds its educational purpose of facilitating skill inculcation and community enrichment through traditional and non-traditional programs focusing on basic, vocational, professional, technical and life skill domains. Apart from catering to the educational needs of 18-23 year olds drawn from the academic streams of secondary education system, efforts will be taken for opening higher education/training avenues for the pass-outs/teachers of Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), Vocational Higher Secondary Schools (VHSSs) and Polytechnics that could underpin the respective streams. The formal and informal sectors of the employed category will be provided skill upgrade options through credential based educational programs and non-credit oriented training programs. Non-formal pedagogy will be deployed for community enrichment programs.



Over the last 12 years TeamLease Services has placed 1 person every 5 minutes. The fact that it was able to place only 5 % of candidates who walked into its centres raised serious questions on the ‘Quality of Education’ as well as chances of Employability Skills dearth amongst the youth.

This demanded for innovation at the intersection of 3E’s namely, Employment – Employability – Education. We treat this as highly linked subjects. However, we also see need to excel in each of them individually, in addition to build on synergies, so that the combined impact is much larger.

TeamLease Education Foundation (TLEF), 100% subsidiary of TeamLease Services Pvt. Ltd. was created with an objective to establish TeamLease Skills University (TLSU), India’s First Vocational Private University, in response to national call for large-scale skill inculcation and get incorporated as a Private University under the provisions of the Gujarat Private Universities Act, 2009.

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between TeamLease Services Pvt. Ltd. and the Government of Gujarat on January 12, 2011 during the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit, 2011, to set up a Private University for Vocational Education. The Government of Gujarat had issued a Letter of Intent (LoI) to TLEF on February 7, 2012 for establishment of “TeamLease Skills University”.
