Education is at the core of Akash Raut’s existence. With a dream to convert his passion for teaching into his profession, vocation and mission, Akash started educating children in 2005 while he was still a student. In a true sense, Akash has over 17 years of experience working with learners across various age groups in various schools, colleges and universities. In parallel, he has offered teacher training, school consultancy, personal counselling, life coaching and pastoral care services. His ideology, educational philosophy and beliefs are deeply rooted with learners at the center. Being mindful of why, how, and what we do for the community has always interested him.
In 2018, Akash founded a social initiative named ‘Borderless Education’ to empower and enrich the education fraternity for which he has received many accolades. Akash serves several schools under various titles, including Principal with an IB/Cambridge International school in Chandigarh, Director of Academics in an experiential and progressive school in Maharashtra, and International Curriculum Advisor in another two schools in the Konkan region of Maharashtra. Akash’s IKIGAI in life is clear, and he aims to serve the education fraternity to the best of his potential. At a young age, Akash is one of the emerging Eduleaders in India whose educational philosophy states –
‘I am an educator because I wish to bring a change. While I realize what I hope to accomplish is limited, I know education is where I can have the greatest impact. With the belief that the purpose of human existence is to uplift one another, I strive to contribute to the education fraternity as it is the key to this upliftment. I strongly advocate that what one learns should never remain in the closed books but rather reach far and wide, touching the lives of people who wish to be a part of this change’.
