Employment Linked Skilling Program


The future of higher education lies in online learning. However, a significant thought that concerns students is the possibility of employment opportunities after successfully finishing their online course programs. From a student's perspective, services like internships and placement assistance increases the value of their degrees. On the other hand, The University believes that students, fresh out of college, often lack certain basic job skills which make them difficult to be hired by HR managers. Some companies, reluctantly, set up in house training departments that work towards training these incumbent employees before they can be inducted into the business.

To bridge this gap, Schoolguru, the leading provider of Online learning services in India in partnership with the equally established recruitment Company TeamLease Services Limited, has launched a unique finishing skills program.

The ambitious Employment Linked Skilling Program (ELSP) in partnership with the placement partner TeamLease, guarantees job opportunities and provides the students with individualized support in their quest for their first job. The strategic alliance with the leading staffing company along with the right kind of skill’s training provided through the ELSP program will provide ample job opportunities for the students studying in various distance learning courses of the partner universities. Schoolguru is the only company in India who has launched its integrated learning platform, Lurningo, that hand holds the students right from their University to the doors of the corporate world


  • To provide Employability skills and Employment Assistance to the students of the University and set up an example for high quality and purposeful education in the country

  • To provide such finishing skills that are necessary for student while they enter the corporate world

  • To help students ‘Learn-on- the-job’ and earn their work-experience


Get the unfair advantage - A student, who possesses the basic finishing skills, has always found it easier to find his/her first job. The art of being able to present oneself, in a way that can impress an interviewer, is necessary in today’s competitive world. Moreover, the ability to apply these traits in day-to- day activities and functions helps the candidate grow up the corporate ladder.

Learn the right skills - The ELSP program teaches certain necessary skills crafted into several modules. It trains the students in the areas like Business Communication Skills, Soft Skills, Sales Skills, Data Skills, Negotiation Skills, Computer Application Skills, Business Etiquettes and Knowledge about certain Industry Domains.

Learn on the Go – use ‘Lurningo’ - Our innovative mobile learning app ‘Lurningo’, helps the student learn and practice the skills on his/her smartphone. The learning as well as the assessment can be completed by the student using his smartphone (however, we are also available to train using a tablet, laptop or desktop).

Earn while your Learn? - This unique and essential program also provides a paid Internship Opportunity (apprenticeship) to the student upon successful completion of the program. Students are offered several paid internship options in leading corporates that are tagged to the Government of India’s NEEM mission (National Employability Enhancement Mission). The interested students shall be mentored and their candidature shall be presented to the interested companies who shall help the students ‘learn on the job’. Teamlease Services brings this unique capability owing to its PPP agreement with the Ministry of Skill Development and AICTE.

Earn your work-ex even before you graduate - The students who pursue this internship opportunity (3-36 months) get to learn and apply the skills on the job while being paid a handsome stipend. Moreover, this apprenticeship also provides a work experience certificate (that is recognised by the Ministry of Skill Development, GOI and AICTE) that takes off the tag of the ‘Fresher’ and gets one completely ready to take off into the corporate world upon completion of one’s education.

Get Job Ready - Teamlease Services, our partner in this initiative, who is counted amongst India’s largest staffing companies, provide preferential placement assistance to every successful ELSP student.

Certifying Universities – Currently ELSP is offered by Acharya Nagarjuna University, Aligarh Muslim University, Tamil University, Tamil Nadu Open University. The students can opt for ELSP as a part of their online degree programs.
