Suraasa, which is UAE’s leading teacher growth-focused EdTech & JobTech platform, has forayed into the Indian market to help Indian teachers get much-deserved recognition and career growth. Suraasa aims to position India’s 90 Lakh school teachers as the world’s leading educationists of tomorrow.
Suraasa’s parent company, Les Transformations Learning Private Limited, has trained over 100,000 teachers from 1,500 schools across 21 states in India before launching Suraasa. Based in Gurugram, Haryana, Les Transformations has been recognised as India’s best teacher training company at Indian Education Congress in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Suraasa Founder and CEO Rishabh Khanna said, “Our redesigned teacher education and technology has positively impacted teachers, schools and children. That’s why Schools and Education boards abroad have placed their trust in us. Coming to India, we laud National Educational Policy 2020’s mandate in upgrading teacher education standards in India, and our programs are ready to support it.”
Suraasa-trained teachers have been bagging permanent jobs in international schools, fast promotions, and salary hikes, all while winning the respect of 21st-century school children in Dubai, even during the pandemic. Principals from leading schools reported increased school ratings, classroom efficiency, and staff satisfaction after their teachers enrolled with Suraasa, the company said.
Suraasa is bringing to India its Professional Qualifications for Assistant Teachers, Teachers, Teacher Coordinators, and Principals. Being recognised by the UK OFQUAL and KHDA Dubai, a qualified graduate becomes a highly sought-after teacher by top schools in India and abroad. Suraasa’s Jobs platform will host jobs from several premia high-paying schools where Suraasa-trained teachers will get apprenticeship and work opportunities.
Suraasa Founder and CTO Ankit Khanna said, “Mentoring the one who shapes our future is an important responsibility, and everyone at Suraasa takes it very seriously. Over the past ten years, we researched extensively to identify the fundamental building blocks of teacher education, including integrating the latest technologies like Artificial Intelligence for better outcomes.”
Suraasa offers support to teachers who are passionate about improving students’ learning creatively and are motivated to grow their careers.
Suraasa’s Chief Strategy Officer Sahil Makker said, “Teachers selflessly wait up to 20 years for a single promotion. As a tribute, we created this EdTech & JobTech platform to standardize teachers’ career trajectory, just like in corporate careers. Our team is working hard to unveil a mentorship system to help teachers plan & achieve their career growth.”
To achieve this, first, the teaching career must appeal to the existing and new teachers as a financially viable and progressive career path. Second, teachers must thoroughly understand the learning needs of 21st century schoolchildren, who are digitally-savvy, inundated with information, and easily distracted, the company added.
Suraasa qualifications are available online for teachers across India on the Suraasa website, iOS & Android apps. Teachers and aspiring teachers can initiate admission and scholarship applications online.
