GuruQ – a one-of-its-kind integrated digital platform that connects students and tutors – conducted a highly successful micro-learning program called GuruQGyaan created especially for students from classes 9 till 12 from June 27 till 30.

GuruQGyaan was designed to resemble a corporate-style training session and received a tremendous response with over 650 students registering for it and 200 students attending the workshop across three location in Delhi-NCR. The micro-learning program was targeted towards teenagers looking to gain an extra edge in this competitive world.

Participants eagerly lapped up the information from an assorted mix of modules covering Entrepreneurial Skills and Soft Skills to help them think out of the box and encourage their overall development. GuruQGyaan comprised an array of interesting topics including ‘How to make a Business Plan’, ‘Grooming & Personality Development’, ‘Sales, Marketing & Branding’, ‘Networking & Relationship Building’, ‘Time Management & Productivity’, ‘Communication Skills’, ‘Leadership & Team Management’ & ‘Motivation & Positive Thinking’.

The learning modules were adapted for school students and were made fun through a combination of diverse media including visual imagery, memes, videos etc. and were conducted by industry experts and professional trainers.

​Priyanka Yadav who was part of the program was extremely happy with the experience. She said, “Being a part of GuruQ's learning program was an incredible experience. I learned about essential soft skills that I wouldn’t have learned at this stage if it weren’t for this program as such practical skills are not a part of the school curriculum.”

All the modules were informative and covered important topics like leadership, positive thinking etc. In just two days, I learnt techniques and tricks that I will use over a lifetime. This program has added immense value to me.,” she said.

Lakshay Bhatt​ called the session a life-changing experience. He said, “I consider myself transformed post the 2-day session. Every session seemed like a capsule of accumulated expertise of the trainers which was simplified for school students and delivered as easy-to-apply action points. Special mention goes to Mr. Pramit J. Nathan who made learning a fun experience with some great life changing information.”
