Degree Apprenticeship

Empowering the youth of today with pragmatic learning

TeamLease Degree Apprenticeship is India’s fastest growing blended apprenticeship program in India. The program aims to help organizations develop a qualified, robust and sustainable workforce and a productive human supply chain. TeamLease Degree Apprenticeship Program was set up as a 100% employer-funded Public-Private Partnership (PPP). Its stakeholders currently include TeamLease Skills University, TeamLease Edtech, CII and Ministry of Skill Development.

TeamLease Skills University launched Degree Apprenticeship program in 2014 and has since enrolled over 200,000 apprentices with over 700 employers in 40 sectors and 150 job roles. All apprentices have transition to formal employment with a 45% wage premium. The program recently launched (a web portal for matching employers and apprenticeship seekers)



The program has opened new channels for the employer-people supply chain in creating a talent pipeline, improving productivity, and ensuring a lower attrition rate. Since then TeamLease Degree Apprenticeship program has successfully empowered youth by enabling earning-while-learning and learning by doing. India’s current penetration of apprentices is very weak, and only 35,000 employers create positions equalling 0.01% of the workforce. The scenario is changing rapidly, and TeamLease believes that India can reach the short term goal of 1 million employers creating apprenticeship positions equal to 1% of our labour force.

TeamLease’s value proposition to three stakeholders is simple; return on investment to employers (via lower attrition, higher productivity, and faster hiring), signalling value to youth (Apprenticeship program improve resumes more than courses), and demand driven financing for government (more than 97% of TeamLease Skill’s University’s 700 crore in costs are met by employers). Our future strategy involves integrating four classrooms (online, onsite, on-campus, and on-the-job), four qualifications (certificate, diploma, advanced diploma, and degree), and four financing sources (CSR, loans, fees, and employers).
