What about our company

India needs to embrace internet and technology if it has to teach all of its huge population, the majority of which is located in remote villages. Now that we have computers and internet, it makes sense to invest in technological infrastructure that will make access to knowledge easier than ever. Instead of focusing on outdated models of brick and mortar colleges and universities, we need to create educational delivery mechanisms that can actually take the wealth of human knowledge to the masses. The tools for this dissemination will be cheap smartphones, tablets and computers with high speed internet connection. While all these are becoming more possible than ever before, there is lot of innovation yet to take place in this space.
We at Educare, strive to bridge this gap between this outdated model to a more innovative educational system, helping the students in their admission to new age colleges and courses and pursuing for promising career and goal…

Industry Snapshot

India has one of the largest higher education systems in the world. The economic growth of the country is leading to a surge in demand for more engineers, management graduates, computer engineers, and many other professionals. Given the huge opportunity in the sector, there is a growing trend of private sector participation. According to a recent FICCI report on the private sector’s participation in the Indian higher education, the country has displayed impressive growth over the last decade to become one of the world’s largest systems of higher education. The number of institutions has grown at a CAGR of 11% while student enrollment has grown at a CAGR of 6%.

Given the Indian government’s radical reforms and massive expansion plans in the education sector, a lot more schools and colleges are going to be opened across the country, including rural areas. According to the ASER (2012) report, over the last six years, private school enrolment in rural India has gone up by 5.5 percentage points.

Talent Challenges

While there is no official estimate of the number of teachers India will require by 2020, a rough estimate by the IIT’s pegs the country’s need at around 4.2 million lecturers to teach 42 million students at the higher educational level. The country is currently facing acute shortage of faculty at the higher education level. There exists a huge demand supply gap, and the sector is currently reeling under a huge talent crisis.
