With over 10 schools, 16,000 students, 550 teaching staff and 25,000 strong alumni, the Group is widely recognized for its process & system-oriented academic rigor. 

Leveraging this vast network, the Group has forayed into multiple Vocational & Development Courses, moving beyond the K-12 education space. All the courses offered at Shikshanam are meticulously designed by experts and practitioners to ensure that the theory practice gap is bridged and learners are truly empowered to pursue their chosen path with confidence.

Learning and innovation go hand in hand. As education evolves globally, we are acutely aware of the fact that ‘what we did yesterday, will not be sufficient for tomorrow.’ Our journey of exploration will continue.

D.A.V Group of Schools

DAV Shikshanam offers niche courses across verticals in sync with our overall philosophy of making education value based and affordable. Our flagship program is the Teacher training course – Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) & Nursery Teacher Training (NTT), wherein potential teachers undergo a one-year full-time rigorous MBA kind of program, helping them transform into a ‘Guru’.

We also hold short duration coaching classes for the Teacher Eligibility Tests – CTET & TNTET. In addition, we nurture young patriots for the NDA (National Defence Academy) and CDS (Combined Defence Services) providing coaching for both the written exams and the SSB interviews. Through the DAV Group of Schools, we also conduct classes for NEET and IIT-JEE entrance exams.

We hold multiple part-time courses across diverse topics – Communication, GST & Income Tax, Tally, Communication, Business Accounting & Office skills. Our latest course has been the ‘Public Policy Fellowship program’ (PPFP), aimed towards building a more informed civil society. We also hold workshops for parents to help them evolve their parenting styles. 

We have also recently launched the ‘Teacher Recruitment’ vertical wherein we will support schools in identifying good teachers (both full-time and temporary vacancies) in a very cost-effective way.

DAV Guru Shikshanam is a blessing in my life. It brought out the real teacher in me. It helped me move out of my comfort zone and created the thirst to learn more, explore more and do more. The subjects are well crafted by a team of experts and every faculty is the best in their fields. The practical courses in the first half of the day which spans across classes 1 to 10 over the year enabled me to understand how teaching patterns and communication with the students differ. The theory classes helped us to apply whatever we learnt in the practical sessions to get the real picture especially child psychology and classroom management. The assessment was a continuous process and the exams were challenging. If someone has the passion for teaching, there cannot be a better place than Guru Shikshanam.

The ‘Business Accounting & Office Skills’ course is a comprehensive and career oriented course. I had zero knowledge about Accounting before taking up this course. With the help of expert coaching, I am successful and now working as accountant in a Pvt Ltd Company. I highly recommend this course to anyone who aspires to acquire all round knowledge about Accounting.

A highly impressive institute that makes educators feel supported and equipped in their effort to change lives. I felt honoured to learn from such professional and positive people. Everything they do oozes integrity and excellence. It was so refreshing.

The Nursery Teacher Training Course helped me to perceive the way of looking at children from their perspective and also to handle them appropriately. The extreme care that every child needs during their kindergarten years is not only explained during theory sessions and eminent speakers’ sessions, but also practically experienced. Being with children in classrooms has also given a complete hands-on experience in every aspect including the motherly approach of teachers. The holistic approach has thus molded me to confidently take up my career a teacher. Privileged to be part of the training!

Over the past year, DAV Nursery has become a second home for me. During NTT course I found all the faculty, support staff and the school management very much supportive and professional which made me pursue my course in confident way.  This course has more hands-on than theoretical knowledge which helps us to apply concepts easily. I would strongly recommend DAV Guru Shikshanam to anyone who has got a liking to groom young kids, very early in their schooling. The course also offers several opportunities to showcase and hone my skills and abilities in arts and craft besides regular subjects.
Uma Sathyanandan Nursery Teacher Training Batch 2019-2010
A very enriching experience to participate in a one-of-a-kind Public Policy Fellowship Program organised by DAV Shikshanam. The program gave participants a wide view of diverse subjects ranging from ‘India's Military Might’ to ‘Understanding Healthcare System’ to something very legal – ‘India's Constitution and Amendments’. The whole objective is to create awareness regarding different subjects pertaining to the country to enable one to become an Informed Citizen.

Our Guiding Philosophy
Our Guiding Philosophy

The DAV Group of Schools is an embodiment of the Dayanand Anglo-Vedic movement that began in Lahore in the year 1886. It was inspired by Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the founder of Arya Samaj and its core aim was to build a knowledge driven society based on Vedic principles. In the year 1970, the seeds of the DAV movement were sown in Chennai by dedicated visionaries, supported by a large community of well-wishers who enabled the Institution’s success and growth. Thanks to their generous contributions, capital expenses of land & infrastructure were met and the Institution was able to provide high quality education and facilities, while making the fee affordable and therefore accessible to all classes of society. This model continues to thrive till today and reflects in even in the pricing structure of DAV Shikshanam which offers courses of a high standard delivered by expert faculty while keeping the investment low for the students.
