The exciting, longer, live-and-in-person version will be hosted at the wonderful Leela Ambience Hotel in Gurgaon on Saturday July 23, 2022. Featuring knowledgeable international speakers, local experts, enriching exhibits, and opportunities to build an education network – there is nothing like the XSEED Conference. Book your place now.

India’s new National Education Policy has been widely welcomed for its progressive and research-based recommendations. The policy has implications for several aspects of school education including – enriching early childhood education, advancing experiential methodology, strengthening student skills & core concepts, furthering teacher development, and a revamped competency based assessment system – amongst others. How does my school stack versus others on these fronts? What must I do to improve? What steps must be taken and how?

N.E.P is not just a challenge for schools, it is also an amazing opportunity for schools, teachers and parents to refocus education on THE THINKING CHILD. Schools can strengthen quality of instruction, enhance reputation and prestige, and secure better enrolments and resources. Teachers can improve as professionals, further their career prospects, and achieve greater job satisfaction. And ultimately, all students can unlock more of their potential to become skilled, confident and engaged thinkers who leave their schooling years with a competitive edge.

Join us at the XSEED Conference (India Edition) to discover this amazing world of opportunity, to gather practical ideas & tips, and meet people pursuing similar goals & passions. All in-person attendees will receive a special certificate of participation.
