Unacademy, the Indian learning platform, has announced a new policy for the children of its employees and Plus Educators.
‘Unacademy Nurture’ is a policy which offers free Unacademy subscriptions across K-12 and competitive exam categories for all parents at Unacademy for all their children. It can be availed by current employees and Plus Educators, as well as those who join the Company in the future.
The policy will “provide unrestricted access to high-quality education for the next generation children of Unacademy,” says Tina Balachandran, vice president – HR, Unacademy. According to her, this policy is yet another “step forward towards democratising high-quality education, especially with the people who have significantly contributed to Uncademy’s growth”.
The policy will allow parents to avail free subscriptions to multiple relevant goals at a time for each child, by filling up separate requisitions for each one of their children. The subscription will be valid till the end of goal subscription, even if the parent stops being affiliated with the organisation.
Founded in 2015, by Gaurav Munjal, Hemesh Singh, and Roman Saini, Unacademy started as a YouTube channel. Today, the learning platform has a network of 60,000+ registered educators and over 62 million learners. The platform imparts education in 14 Indian languages, catering to learners across 10,000 cities.
In early November, the edtech platform had acquired online tuition platform, Swiflearn, as part of its endeavour to strengthen its position in the kindergarten to grade 12 (K-12) category.
