Physics Wallah (PW), India’s educational technology unicorn, is preparing to launch a comprehensive curriculum for kindergarten through 8th-grade students through its school partnership arm, PW Academy. The initiative aims to promote the holistic development of students from an early age. As part of this move, PW plans to target 2,000 schools for curriculum implementation in the coming academic year. According to the statement, the curriculum will be supplemented with two free upskilling platforms: PW Nurture, which offers training in reasoning, mathematics, and verbal skills, and PW Curious Junior, designed to help children develop their coding skills.
The curriculum will be implemented in schools in three series. The ”Bloom” series, spanning from nursery to class 2, focuses on nurturing and laying solid foundations for 21st-century skills. The ”Eunext” curriculum, covering classes from nursery to 8, includes subjects such as Mathematics, Science, and English. Furthermore, the ”Spark” curriculum is tailored for students in classes 6 to 8, with an extension for classes 9-10, and will impart knowledge in AI and coding, reflecting PW’s commitment to technological advancement.
Physics Wallah (PW) currently empowers more than 100 schools in tier 3 and tier 4 cities with the JEE/NEET test programme. PW’s school partnership arm, PW Academy, aligns with its broader vision of providing high-quality education to students, including young girls, in remote regions of India where access to affordable coaching for competitive exams and early skill development is limited.
Regarding the development, Imran Rashid, Chief Business Officer of Physics Wallah, stated:
We have consistently been dedicated to ensuring equal access to high-quality education. This initiative highlights a significant stride in numeracy and literacy, aligning with the National Education Policy (NEP) by introducing a comprehensive curriculum covering students from nursery to class 8. Our objective is to empower young learners, fostering the development of vital skill sets and nurturing critical thinking abilities right from the start. This will prepare them for a successful future and instil a lifelong love for learning and a deep curiosity.
