Podar Learn School (PLS) which provides complete all-round assistance in setting up new schools has signed up additional five franchisees in the quarter of April to June 2021 across Maharashtra, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh states. Through its education franchise based model, Podar Learn School is supporting the vision of education entrepreneurs in rural India. Extending the perks of its path-breaking educational services to central, southern and Western India, the three new franchisees in Madhya Pradesh are Naveen Podar Learn School (Parasia, Chhindwara), Naveen Podar Learn School (Chaurai, Chhindwara) and Pawansut Podar Learn School (Chinora, Chandrapur) and one in Karnataka – Poste Podar Learn School (Benakanalli, Bidar) and Munde’s Podar Learn School (Salegaon, Beed) in Maharashtra.
According to the organisation’s press release with the 5 new franchisees on board, the initiative now has a network of 36 schools across the country. Podar Learn School model has already begun to yield results with not only a substantial number of students enrolled so far but also franchisees setting up multiple schools in different towns such as Naveen Podar Learn School and Poste Podar Learn School and Bordikar’s Podar Learn School taking up two franchisees each. The geographical spread of this network is predominantly in Tier 2 cities, small towns, and semi-rural areas, reflecting the initiative’s endeavour to deliver and make quality education accessible to children at the grassroots level.
The release further stated that the establishment and operation of a school require funding, infrastructure installation and maintenance, meticulous recruitment, financial planning, and operational and marketing expertise, to begin with. Podar Learn School helps the franchisee with branding, quality control, consistency, and long-term viability. Given the multitude of factors essential for its successful functioning, PLS provides the necessary 360-degree support to the franchisee school.
Harsh Podar, Director, Podar Education Network said, “Signing up of new franchisees during these difficult times is a demonstration of not only our market leadership but also showcases the huge requirement for quality education in rural India. It’s heartening to receive such an overwhelming response to the Podar Learn School franchise concept. At a time when the country is aiming to make robust moves towards a more educated and skilled youth, students in rural schools often suffer due to inadequate infrastructure, teaching resources, and approaches. Bridging this gap, Podar Learn School, a pioneer, is paving the way to make high-quality education accessible to students all across rural and semi-urban India. It is also important to note that rural edupreneurs are seizing this lucrative opportunity whole heartedly. Podar Learn School is generating growth opportunities for social entrepreneurship and employment for the local population.”Corporate, News
