Knowledge grows when it is shared. Inventure Academy has forged rewarding partnerships with organizations that add value to the education we offer, sharing their insight in related fields. While some help us improve our processes, others enable faculty development. The benefits of all initiatives ultimately trickle down to our students who gain from a well-rounded education.

Educational Initiatives (EI)
Educational Initiatives (EI):
Founded by a group of IIM (A) alumni in 2001, with ample personal experience of educational institutions, Educational Initiatives (EI) is an effort to ensure every child learns with understanding. In association with EI, Inventure uses their proprietary test tools that give us a measure of our performance on various indices, helping us identify and improve in certain areas actively. These tools include:
ASSET: A scientifically designed international benchmarking and diagnostic test conducted for students of classes 3 to 10 for Maths, Science, English, Hindi and Social Studies that assesses conceptual understanding vs rote learning.
Mindspark: A computer based self adaptive learning program that focuses on self-learning with a curriculum integrated database. Mindspark aims at making Math easy to understand and fun to learn – and our Grade 1 – 8 students will agree!
Detailed Assessment: A topic-wise testing tool designed to provide immediate feedback to teachers on the current level of student understanding on the topics taught and completed in the classroom. We have used it for Grade 3 Math and Science.

Besides conducting comprehensive teacher training and development programmes like Touchstone, which help teachers understand learners and learning better while fine tuning their teaching and communication skills, TTF actively supports us in recruiting teachers who educate and inspire.
