Our Focus / Expertise

People are the single biggest competitive advantage a company has because you cannot replicate them.

Education / EduTech

The Indian education system, recognized as one of the largest in the world, is divided into two major segments of core and non-core businesses. While schools and higher education form the core group, the non-core business consists of pre-schools, vocational training and coaching classes.

The education sector is currently estimated at US$ 100 billion and is expected to reach US$ 180 billion by 2020. There are more than 1.5 million schools having an enrolment of 260 million students, there are about 751 universities and more than 35,539 colleges.

With increasing internet penetration, India has become the second largest market for e-learning after the US. India needs 1.2 million more teachers under the Right to Education Campaign, according to the Ministry of Human Resource and Development. With 546 million people under 25 years of age, there is huge potential in India in the education sector that needs to be tapped.


At Silverpeople, we have been closely following the sector and understand the challenges as well as the dynamics of operating in this sector. Given the sharp gap in demand-supply ratio, we have geared up to play a major role to help recruit the best talent available across roles.
