TeamLease launches Digivarsity – India’s first AI-powered platform for work-integrated degree and career Discovery

TeamLease launches Digivarsity

The introduction of Digivarsity, a ground-breaking tech-first platform that seamlessly combines academic learning with real-world experience for higher education students, was announced today by TeamLease Edtech, India’s top provider of learning solutions. With the platform, higher education in India is expected to undergo a revolution, equipping students with both the practical skills and academic knowledge required for long-term career success. With the help of over 150 major enterprises and partnerships with India’s top 10 institutions, Digivarsity is now able to provide cutting-edge degree programmes that are related to the world of work. It allows them to combine their academic studies with real work experience and make educated decisions about their education. The NEP2020 vision for the future of higher education in India is truly realised in Digivarsity.

The Board of Apprenticeship Training (BOAT-WR), CSC Academy, Assam Electronics Development Corporation (AMTRON), Government of Telangana, and APSCHE (AP State Council of Higher Education) are some of the PSUs that have partnered with the company to further the cause and reach of these Work Integrated Degree Programmes.

“Digivarsity is positioned to usher in a seismic shift in India’s higher education system. To scale the platform and serve more than 10 lakh students, we would invest INR 100 crore over the following five years. The objective is to give students the skills that employers are looking for and to sculpt the workforce of the future”, said Shantanu Rooj, Founder and CEO, TeamLease EdTech.

The introduction of Digivarsity tackles important issues that both industry and universities are facing. The majority of businesses lament their inability to attract and keep talented workers, while universities strive to provide academic excellence and skill development for their students so that they are marketable upon graduation. A collaboration between the employer and the university can bridge the gap between the two worlds and benefit the learner. By facilitating work-integrated degree programmes, developing a talent supply chain for the future, and assisting universities in broadening their influence, Digivarsity acts as a catalyst for change. In the coming years, Digivarsity will be crucial in raising India’s GER. The programs on Digivarsity are unique as they embody three important attributes –

● Earning while Learning

● Learning by Doing

● Learning with higher Signalling Value

Every student who enrols in the Work-Integrated Degree Programmes offered by the partner universities will be given the chance to complete an on-the-job internship or apprenticeship with an employer. As a result, the student will graduate with actual work experience and will thus have a distinct advantage over college freshmen who lack experience. Additionally, each student will receive a monthly stipend to help pay for their education and other expenses, realising the goal of “Earn while you Learn,” according to Neeti Sharma, President and Co-Founder of TeamLease EdTech.

In order to customise education, Jaideep Kewalramani, COO and Head of Employability Business, TeamLease EdTech, says, “At Digivarsity, we believe in leveraging technology.” “Our AI-driven platform is tailored to the unique requirements of both companies and students. For a fully individualised experience, we take into account both subjective and objective factors like location, interests, academic background, and ability. It ensures that students obtain specialised assistance by matching higher education programmes with pertinent employer opportunities. The platform also makes use of progressive aptitude tests, visual cues, and digital video resumes to improve the candidate evaluation process. We differ from conventional education platforms because of this.
