Mentor's Speak

Sandeep R. Shroff [FCA, CFA CS] - Chief Operating Officer :

Building young and promising careers is our motto! It happens through providing value added professional qualifications on one side, and imparting training in life skills on the other. If quality education is blended with market skills as well as street smartness, a young person is absorbed easily in the job market and his vertical growth is faster too. However, teaching extra skills over and above the normal academic syllabus is always a challenge. Students have to put in extra efforts to achieve two things in the same time frame. To achieve something extra in life, one has to put in not only hard work but smart work. This is what we teach our students. Smart work requires determination, high ambition, disciplined use of limited time, strict timetables, constant faculty support, and positive attitude achieve participation by students in campus activities, interactions with successful people and organizations, and perseverance. We nurture our students in an environment which cultivates the above qualities in them while they are on the campus and actively participate in academic and extra-curricular activities round the year. Our satisfaction is in making a visible difference in the caliber of a student while she/he trains at Knowledge Academy. If we prepare a cadre of responsible future citizens, no one can stop our country from growing and these youngsters from making wonderful careers. God bless the students with all success!

Mehul Thakkar [CA], Partner - Fountainhead :

I have been mentoring CA students for last 15 years. Having been associated with the CA coaching methodology and practices prevalent in our city, I was always of the opinion that there is need to bring radical changes in this space. In this background, when I met Milanbhai & Sandeepbhai of Knowledge Academy, I realised that here is an institution which is committed to redefine coaching and test-preparation space by not just tutoring the students to pass the examination but believes in mentoring them to become all-round professionals. This commitment drew me and my brother Mr. Manan Thakkar to partner with Knowledge Academy to launch FOUNTAINHEAD to offer test-preparation courses for CA examination.

Thousands of students have qualified as CA under my mentorship and based on my experience of, I may vouch with conviction that despite CA being very rigorous examination, it is possible to clear the CA examination in first attempt itself if students put plan their studies methodically and in organised manner, give equal importance to both understanding the concepts and application and has strong determination to succeed. Following is the illustrative list of some of the best practices we have adopted to differentiate FOUNTAINHEAD from any other "tuition class".

  • We make it a point that each and every member of our faculty team is professionally qualified as we firmly believe that you cannot engage non-professionals to create professionals!
  • We have painstakingly developed and executed very elaborate internal evaluation (practice tests) system to continuously monitor the progress of the students and to provide him the timely feedback for improvement.
  • We have pool of professionally qualified full-time faculty available round the clock on our campus to clear the doubts and queries of students individually. This is unique strength of FOUNTAINHEAD which gives great academic & moral support to our students.
  • In our teaching technique we lay equal importance to concepts and its application. Not only that, our faculty team has developed study material which is rich in contents and at the same time lucid enough for students to absorb easily.
  • Lastly we offer unparalleled infrastructure facility which is so modern, vibrant and comfortable that our students have made Knowledge Academy campus as their second home.

I am very proud to mention that as a result of above differentiators, our students have reaped rich dividend as we have been continuously achieving success rate much higher that not only the national average but that of other coaching classes at all the three levels of CA Examination, i.e. CPT, IPCC & Final.

FOUNTAINHEAD now also offers test-preparation courses for Cost & Works Accounting (CWA) and Company Secretary (CS) courses with same level of excellence and differentiators adopted for CA.

I may conclude by assuring the students that it is our mission that once you step-in FOUNTIANHEAD you will step-out after becoming well rounded professional!

Ms. Anita Shah, Chief Counselling & Relationship Officer :

In the competitive global environment where Jobs can be given to only the most deserving candidate, employers are looking for the thin line which separates the wheat from the chaff. Research has shown that this thin line is defined by the soft skills and the IT skills that the candidate possess over and above the knowledge- based skill set. Soft skills encompass all the aspects of generic skills that include the cognitive elements associated with non-academic skills whereas IT skills ensure the ability to quickly adapt to the ever changing technological environment. Employers are constantly seeking candidates which possess these skills as it helps in determining professional behavior of the candidate at the work place.

Therefore at Knowledge Academy we give equal importance to the academic skills as well as the soft skills and IT training. The curriculum, having been designed in consultation with academic and industry experts, mould the student into a candidate with the strong academic background and the edge which the employers seek. Along with academics, we enhance the candidate's leadership and communication skills, team working abilities as well as develop their technical IT Skills. At Knowledge Academy it is not just about learning- its about learning with a difference- a difference that employers seek- a difference that employers seek- a difference that sets you apart in the world.
