Coaching to help students rediscover themselves

VE- V EMPOWER is an acronym for Value and Enable all to Manifest their best Potential by Overcoming limitations Within to Evolve and Rediscover themselves.

Aspire to Inspire

At Shoolini University, we believe, “The greatest roadblocks to success are not ever outside but within us.” In that stead, VE aspires to inspire students find answers within and reach the height of success.

VE- V EMPOWER is a full-fledged engagement to cover the entire community of students, faculty and staff at the campus. We endeavour to bring alive the word ‘empowerment’ with this one-of-a-kind initiative. Coaching is a highly individualised intervention with emphasis on learning, rather than teaching.

With this programme, Shoolini has joined the league of just a handful of higher educational institutions that bring the much-coveted C-Suite Coaching to students. With all aspects in place, students will be able to manifest their full personal and professional potential by partnering with the coach in a thought-provoking process. The VE-Coaching Programme is open to all students at the university.

Unlock your Potential

Coaching provides a safe, sensitive, and supportive environment for equal opportunities to all students, helping them discover what they want to achieve in their academic, professional, and personal lives.

Through coaching, individuals can reflect, identify, and achieve their goals and support the transfer of learning into their personal lives and workplace. The learning relationships that develop facilitate development of skills and knowledge. Students can thus unlock their potential to maximise performance.

Policy For Coaching Intervention

Shoolini University has a diverse community of students; this policy on Coaching Intervention in Higher Education Sector is formed with an objective to provide a safe, sensitive, supportive and equal opportunity environment for all students to help discover what they want to achieve in their academic, professional, and personal lives.

This first-of-its-kind program introduced in an educational institution has been built upon ICF Core Competencies to develop the leadership skills of students and allow them to reflect and move forward in terms of their approach to people, tasks, and goals.

Students will be awarded a joint ‘Certificate of Completion’ (ICF & Shoolini University) on completion of the program.
