Learning Forward India provides high-impact consulting services for partners with the tools to transform professional learning, increase educator capacity, and improve student achievement. We work very closely with our partner schools and assist in the Monitoring and Evaluation of the school improvement process.

Sandeep's work for The Fabindia Schools Programme to demonstrate excellence in school operations, involving the community and establishing a sustainable model for delivering good education in the villages of India, is now being replicated on a larger scale. His belief is that the happiness of young people is in our hands, and we must do all to help them live their dreams by providing them with the best possible education. Taking ahead his vision and mission, he is working to provide affordable quality education in rural and urban India.

"My understanding is learning outcomes improvement cannot be offloaded to technology. Teachers trained with excellent spoken and storytelling skills can only make this happen, by weaving lessons appropriately in their interaction with students inside the classroom. Teachers can simulate the art of visualisation in students with their storytelling methods. Towards this the leadership improvement programs by Sandeep Dutt and his team is the only permanent fix for the current situation, technology can only take us to a limited distance".
