About TeamLease Skills University. India’s First Vocational Skills University, TeamLease Skills University (TLSU) is co-located within the ITI Tarsali campus at Vadodara and in PPP with Department of Labour and Employment, Government of Gujarat. TLSU is clearly focused on Putting India to Work by offering employment oriented programs and creating a career path for non-graduate employees through our unique Program for working professionals.
As a Skills University, we pray to the one god of employer. 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.
“To enable all individuals acquire skills and capabilities, prepare them to get appropriate employment and ensure their competitiveness in national and international work environment.”
