The knowledge of more than one language is given an upper hand in most of the employment opportunities; this is one of the main reasons why language schools are gaining momentum in the Indian education industry. Moreover, there are opportunities to work in foreign establishments like High Commissions or Embassies, as well as in teaching.Language schools franchises are there to help people in gaining linguistic skills so that they can grab those opportunities.

In recent years, edutainment-related businesses have found their place in the mainstream education industry and are increasingly gaining acceptance among the millennial. Entertainment activities like quiz, edutainment theme parks, gamified learning apps etc are being amalgamated in learning activities, making learning an interesting concept for children. Edutainment franchises such as Nutty Scientists (a science enrichment program) and Kids Age (a children national newspaper) are new concepts in the field and are growing via franchising.
Traditional school system has always incorporated sports in their curriculum but somewhere it has always been insufficient to cater to the growing demand of sports education among the millennial. In today’s time, parents are willing to spend money on activities that ensure their children’s overall development, whether it’s about their studies or sports. Sports educators are starting with their entrepreneurial ventures to fill the gaps and help the aspirants to learn sports. A Sports’ training franchise such as Mission Sports gives opportunities to sports’ educators to own their franchise in Rs10-15 lakhs.
