Visionary educators, investors and entrepreneurs are mining new opportunities out of the adversity of the coronavirus pandemic. Far from being deterred, many of them are now looking forward to start a new school. 

Indian education sector, with 1.5 million schools and over 250 million students, was witnessing a phenomenal growth in the early 2020, before the Covid-19 pandemic caused a widespread closure of educational institutions across the country. With the schools closed, the education sector took a hit. But it also accomplished a complete systemic shift to the online mode to ensure uninterrupted teaching and learning. That commendable resilience is now manifesting again as the schools begin to reopen in a phased manner.

After a hiatus of a year and a half, the school campuses are again abuzz with academic and non-scholastic activity and excitement. Student enrolments are on the rise. The learners who had dropped out during the pandemic are now resuming their education. There is a definite uptick in the demand and all indications point towards a quick recovery and upward march of the education sector towards growth and expansion. 

This is the right time for the potential investors and educators, who had been undecided about starting a new school, to be a part of the upcoming trend of growth. The best and safest way to go about it is to collaborate or partner with a top school brand that has a legacy of trust and accomplishments. Seth Anandram Jaipuria Group of Schools, with a legacy of 76 years in education and growing footprints in the Indian heartland, is the best brand you can choose to start a school with in the post coronavirus period. 

To cater to the different needs, expectations and resource-capabilities of different investors, the Jaipuria Group offers different modes of collaboration:

  • School Franchise Model

This model offers you the opportunity to partner with the Jaipuria Group of Schools. A royalty agreement is drawn based on which you get 360-degree support from the group to help you successfully run the school. The support services include:

  1. Complete guidance and hand-holding in starting the school
  2. Assistance in business planning
  3. Creating the academic calendar
  4. Designing and implementing curriculum
  5. Hiring and training of teachers
  6. Assistance in CBSE affiliation
  7. Marketing, promotion, and IT support
  8. Thorough auditing of processes
  • Asset-Light Model

This model is suited to the parties who already have a school building ready and want to rent it out on lease. There is a good chance of earning assured and incremental rental income over the years, provided you meet certain eligibility criteria:

  1. The school should be located in a metro city
  2. The building must have an area of 75,000 sq feet
  3. The school should be affiliated to either CBSE or ICSE
  4. The minimum land area should be around 3 to 4 acres
  • Built-To-Suit Model

In this model, the land owner builds the school building according to certain specifications. The Jaipuria Group provides all moveable assets and takes over the building on lease for a rental amount that increments over the years and on the fulfilment of specified conditions for growth and expansion. The stipulations for this model are the same as those of the Asset-Light Model. 

By and large, these three models provide the requisite platform for a most favourable collaboration and partnership with the Jaipuria Group of Schools. The group presently has 11 K-12 partner schools and 3 partner pre-schools running successfully in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Uttarakhand. The coming months and years will see these numbers grow impressively. All prospective investors and willing partners are welcome to be a part of our phenomenal success story. A collaboration or partnership with the Jaipuria Group of Schools will open avenues for your growth and prosperity.
