We need schools that can understand not just the present, but also, envision the future possibilities for their students.

As education is transforming, technology-integrated multi-modal teaching and learning methods are replacing traditional learning techniques. LEAD is at the forefront of this transformation in India’s schools & aims to reach 60,000 schools serving 25 million students in the next 5 years

Holistic, future-ready education is the need of the hour, especially for the large majority of India’s ~280 million students who go to schools in India’s small towns. The purpose of holistic education is not only to prepare students for exams and ensure academic proficiency, but also to enable them to become more confident individuals who are better equipped to take on real-world challenges. The need is to address and provide for students’ broadest development at the cognitive and effective levels. And for this, we need schools that can understand not just the present, but also, envision the future possibilities for their students.Very importantly, it is critical to bridge the gap in the quality of education between schools in India’s metros and those in its small towns.

LEAD is working towards solving this challenge by using technology and world class, NEP-aligned curriculum to make excellent education both accessible and affordable for all children, irrespective of location or background. One of India’s largest School EdTech companies and promoted by Leadership Boulevard Private Limited, LEAD is also India’s first School Edtech unicorn.

As Education is transforming, technology-integrated multi-modal teaching and learning methods are replacing traditional techniques. LEAD is at the forefront of this transformation in schools and aims to reach 60,000 schools serving 25 million students over the next five years. LEAD uses technology in the classroom to move schools away from textbook-based rote learning to multimodal learning that enables deep conceptual understanding. It also connects all school stakeholders and provides rich outcomes data that helps schools and teachers personalize learning for students.

LEAD’s uniqueness stems not only from its integrated system that is centered around the student, but also from its multi-stakeholder community which includes school owners, principals, administrative staff, teachers, and parents. LEAD’s School Edtech system not only improves student learning outcomes, but also ensures operational excellence and efficiency for schools; boosts teacher skills and productivity, and helps better engage parents. Today, LEAD is bringing 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.
