“Educomp is now entering Professional education and Training space to address the huge skill gap in India”
CEO, Educomp Solutions
Your company has made it to the Forbes Best Under A Billion list for the Asia-Pacific region. How does it feel to make it to the list of 200 companies?
It is indeed an honour to be featured among the top 200 under billion (USD) companies in Asia-Pacific region. All such recognitions serve to further motivate us.
What is the Educomp 03 Learning System?
Educomp O3 Learning System is a new age learning system that facilitates One on One learning in schools and is all set to redefine classroom teaching-learning. It has been developed by Educomp after years of intensive research and provides teachers with a host of tools, strategies and applications to facilitate learning in a One on One computing environment. It is a comprehensive one stop solution enabling a more engaging, interesting and experiential form of teaching and learning.
Under the Educomp O3 programme, every child in class will be equipped with an Intel powered Classmate PC, fully loaded with applications and features designed for One on One learning in schools. Teachers will also be equipped, trained and empowered with intensive teaching learning strategies.
Most of the Educomp solutions are for the K-12 segment? Any plans for the higher education sector?
Over the years, Educomp has clearly established its leadership in the K-12 education space and is now entering the zone beyond K-12, into Professional education and Training space to address the huge skill gap in India.
Our aim is to help thousands of students out of school who are looking for career guidance and coaching for professional courses of their choice. Educomp’s most recent initiative – ETEN program – seeks to address the employability training needs of students across the country through VSAT enabled classrooms. Our recent JV with Asia’s largest education group, Raffles Education Corp will also strengthen our presence in the higher education space.
Please elaborate on Educomp’s foray into school management, vis-a-vis its acquisition of 51% stake in Takshila Management Services.
This is a strategic tie-up to widen our reach into Tier II and Tier III cities where Takshila will be setting up high quality schools. All these schools would be using our advanced Millennium Learning system.
Please tell us about your foray into the pre-school segment. How is Roots to Wings different from other playschools?
Pre-school, being the first educational level for the child is where the roots are established. It is therefore imperative that it begins on the right note. It is here that the child’s roots are nurtured and they develop the wings that enable them to navigate successfully through their schooling years and prepares them for life after. Educomp’s ‘Roots to Wings’ (R2W) learning centre provide an ideal environment for all this.
What sets R2W apart from other Pre-schools is their scientific approach to learning and unique curriculum design
