Manit Jain ( Governing Body Member)
Mr. Manit Jain is a change maker, driven by the vision of delivering meaningful education to the students of our country; education that is relevant and builds the skills and attitudes that will help them shape a world that we would all like to be citizens of. He has been a proponent of experiential learning, launching it successfully in the mainstream environment in the country. Co-Founder and Director of The Heritage Group of Schools which has consistently ranked amongst the top 10 schools in India for the past 3 years, Manit also features amongst the 22 Extraordinary Education Innovators (EW April 2015 issue) and has been recognised as one of the Leaders who can revive Indian Education (EW June 2020 issue). He has also been a key driver of reforms in the larger education landscape by facilitating changes in the education policy of the country. Many of the key elements incorporated in the recent National Education Policies are aligned with the progressive vision for education that Manit has been supporting. Focus on elements like project based experiential learning, multi-disciplinary, value-based approach with special emphasis on skill development, integration of co-curriculars and more holistic assessments and evaluations, that are now a part of the NEP, has been the cause that he has been collaboratively working for, for over two decades. He is a lead member of forums like FICCI ARISE that are working tirelessly for raising the quality of learning outcomes across schools as he sees it as a critical factor for nation building.
