In India, delivering public education and healthcare services effectively is a major challenge due to the lack of preparedness and motivation among government officials. This hinders the quality of services provided to communities. To tackle these issues, Piramal University was established with a vision to bridge the learning gap and empower leaders in the public sector.
Piramal University comprises three schools of excellence. The School of 21st Century Education aims to provide a cutting-edge curriculum that goes beyond rote learning, focusing on social-emotional learning, livelihood education, and essential 21st-century skills. The School of Systems Change aims to cultivate high-performance service cultures in public institutions, ensuring the right people are in the right roles and focusing on outcomes that matter. The School of Transformational Leadership develops future-ready public systems leaders through leadership training and support.
Piramal University’s comprehensive approach includes building the leadership capability of 50,000 civil servants across education, health, and Women and Child Development ministries in 5 states through the School of Transformative Leadership. The School of Systems Change strengthens state health and education institutions in five states, transforming them into “institutes of excellence.” The School of 21st Century Literacy enables states to incorporate essential skills and readiness programs into their education systems. Lastly, the School of Public Health influences health agendas in five states, establishing dedicated public health management cadres and developing middle managers’ capabilities.
