Edtech startup Suraasa, which focuses on making teacher education accessible and provides career lifecycle management, has announced expansion of its physical centers starting from Bengaluru.
Following this in the coming months the company plans to set up its physical learning centers in cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, and other metro cities where teachers can come and learn practical teaching skills from live demonstrations by experts, it said in a statement.
The company has already started receiving enrolments of teachers from states like West Bengal, Maharashtra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Goa etc, it added.
“While there is a huge demand for skilled teachers in India, there is a huge supply of unskilled teachers. There is a dearth of teachers equipped with high-quality pedagogy skills and Suraasa is committed to bridging this gap,” the company said.
The startup claims that 96% of all teachers who have undertaken the program by Suraasa have already found placements with top international schools and the remainders are currently upskilling and preparing to actively pursue their dream school employers.
According to Suraasa, teachers hailing from specialisations such as Physical Education, Arts, Science, Mathematics, English Literature, and Early Learning are all in high demand, not just in International Schools but in schools in India as well.
“Technology has deeply penetrated into every aspect of our lives and every sector of our economy. Even education hasn’t remained unaffected and has been impacted heavily by the technological advancements. We, at Suraasa, are leveraging these upcoming tech trends and unlocking their potential to revolutionise learning for everyone,” Suraasa Founder Rishabh Khanna said.
