Byju’s, EdTech’s leading company with 115 million registered students, will launch 500 training centers in 200 cities this year. Currently, the institution has 104 centers.
As part of the expansion plans, the company has committed an investment of 1,500 crore rupees over the next two years, and the goal is to recruit a million students, said Himanshu Bajaj, head of the training center in Byju. These centers will not only review extracurricular learning through a 360-degree teaching and learning system, but will also create employment opportunities for more than 10,000 people nationwide, he added.
Bajaj, who was in Kochi to launch the training center, said there would be 20 centers out of four in Kerala by the end of the year, bringing together both offline and online learning. The learning centers available to students in grades 4-10 will include district physical education technology centers that provide world-class learning with a focus on interaction and improved outcomes through a two-teacher model.
The Learning Center’s offering has been designed in such a way that students will be able to close learning gaps, strengthen conceptual understanding, and strengthen learning through regular practice and exam-ready tests. Students will also have one teacher for their offline and online classes who will support them in their personalized learning pathways, he said.
Last year, the company launched Byju Classes with a two-teacher advantage for students. With 115 million registered students and 7 million paid subscriptions, the company has an annual renewal rate of 86 percent. As part of the Education for All social initiative, the company has helped 3.4 million children gain access to education through digital learning and aims to empower 10 million children from underserved communities by 2025, he added.
