Bangalore,February 2023: LEAD, India’s largest School Edtech unicorn, is transforming learning outcomes and building Student Confidence in schools across Karnataka. With its international standard curriculum, multi-modal teaching-learning methods and technology-driven solutions, LEAD’s NEP-aligned Integrated School System ensures that students are able to gain deep Conceptual Understanding and mastery across subjects. Nearly 200 schools in Karnataka have already implemented LEAD’s Integrated School Edtech System, benefiting over 80,000 students in the state. Moreover, over 1900 teachers in Karnataka schools have already been trained and certified by LEAD.
LEAD transforms schools in Tier 2+ towns by bridging the gap between the quality of education available in these towns and in India’s metros and large cities. LEAD’s Integrated System is available to over 3000 schools in 400+ towns and cities across India; reaches more than 1.2 million students; and empowers over 25,000 teachers. With LEAD, school students gain confidence to succeed in life by building skills of the future such as Communication, Collaboration and Critical Thinking.
Sumeet Mehta, Co-Founder and CEO, LEAD, said, “A child in India spends 6 – 7 hours in school each day. Yet only a fraction of these students – those studying in high-fee schools in India’s metros – enjoy access to internationally benchmarked, high quality education. At LEAD, we are committed to changing this by empowering schools across India with our Integrated School Edtech system. Karnataka is an important part of this vision, and we will continue to focus on growing our presence in the region as part of our aspiration to reach 60,000 schools and 25 million students over the next 5 years.”
Speaking about LEAD, Mr. Vishwanath Reddy, Principal, Sri Vidyaniketan School, Bengaluru, said, “Sri Vidyaniketan school and college was established in 2003-2004 and is today one of the leading schools in Bengaluru North, Karnataka. We had been searching for an integrated school system that would combine modern curriculum, creativity and technology to ensure that our students were future-ready and confident. LEAD was the perfect fit.”
“When teachers are well-equipped with the right learning objective and resources, student learning outcomes automatically improve. We have experienced this transformation with LEAD, through its teacher training modules, objective lesson plans and classroom management system. Our students are better able to understand concepts and subjects and their academic performance has improved considerably. Moreover, many of our students have worked on interesting projects such as developing websites, as part of LEAD’s Coding and Computational Skills (CCS) program. I’d strongly recommend LEAD to school owners: they will find a difference,” he added.
LEAD enables operational excellence and efficiency for school administrators; boosts teacher skills and productivity; and helps better engage parents in its partner schools. It is solving some of the biggest challenges facing affordable private schools in Karnataka, including choice of the best curriculum for students; sourcing teaching talent; improving student proficiency in English; and the right technology for holistic school education. LEAD-powered schools are able to derive the benefits of improved admissions and greater favourability among parents.
LEAD delivers over 1.5 years of English proficiency growth in a year through its program ‘ELGA’ (English Language and General Awareness), which teaches language as a skill. LEAD students have access to unique and holistic learning experiences and opportunities through national – level platforms such as LEAD’s Student Championship, and LEAD Masterclasses with subject matter experts and celebrities. With LEAD, students gain confidence to succeed in life by building skills of the future such as Communication, Collaboration and Critical Thinking.
Mrs. Syeda Sufiya Tabassum, SKG and ELGA 2 teacher, Sri Vidyaniketan School, Bengaluru, said, “LEAD’s teaching-learning technique has inspired me as a teacher. I have been noticing since the introduction of the technique that students have now developed a remarkable interest in learning. Students also appear to be stress-free, unlike previously. The credit goes to LEAD for freeing learning from being exam-oriented. LEAD has done away with the tension of exams, which always overwhelms kids and parents.”
“I, as an ELGA teacher, have come across something novel which has widened my horizon. I have been able to add a lot to my experience. Moreover, the ELGA method ensures that students are able to learn in an easy way, and are responsive,” she added.
Usha S, mother of Priyanka H, Class 3 student, Sri Vidyaniketan School, said, “I am very pleased with how my child has progressed after Sri Vidyaniketan School has taken up the LEAD Curriculum. The unique way of teaching Math through the CPA method has made my daughter love Maths. As a parent, I have seen significant improvement in her English speaking since the past two years and this has improved her confidence to speak in public. This has been possible only because of level based ELGA teaching provided by LEAD. My daughter always talks about the school and the work she is doing. This all has been possible only because of the continuous efforts taken by the teachers and management of Sri Vidyaniketan School to implement LEAD in the school.”
Established with the vision to bring equity of opportunity so that children studying in schools in India’s small towns have access to the same high quality education that their peers in metros do, LEAD is today one of the few Edtech companies, globally, to offer a Student Mastery guarantee.
LEAD’s integrated system is available to schools in 400+ towns and cities across India, reaching 1.2 million+ students and empowering over 25,000 teachers. LEAD-powered schools provide children with international standard education and national-level exposure for all-round growth, with a focus on helping them become confident and succeed in life.
