Swedish schools operating group Kunskapsskolan has unveiled the first stage of its expansion into India.
The firm's executive vice president, former Swedish education secretary Odd Eiken (pictured), told the Indian press last week that it was currently constructing a private school in Gurgaon, just outside Delhi.
It'll charge a fee, which Eiken described as "competitive", and is due to open next year.
The new school will be operated by a local subsidiary, Kunskapsskolan Eduventures – a joint venture with Indian Education firm Gyandarshan Eduventures.
Kunskapsskolan advocates flexible timetabling and self-directed learning. It currently operates 33 schools in Sweden, and one in the US.
Its UK subsidiary, the Learning Trust, runs three academies on a not-for-profit basis.
