Features and complexity of creating a private school
One of the most important positive characteristics of private educational institutions - to expand the boundaries of the standard of general education programs, introduce new subjects or in-depth study of separate disciplines. Of fundamental importance is the possibility of choice of parents and students of certain subjects. An additional advantage of private educational institutions is also considered attention to the development of personal qualities of students - Rhetoric, communicability, leadership skills. The program of the private schools necessarily include a number of optional subjects orientation - Rhetoric, logic, foreign languages. A choice of additional development activities - dancing, vocals, acting and others. But the main advantage is considered to be a higher level of knowledge through intensive programs in core subjects, which gives more opportunities when entering into prestigious colleges. A particularly important advantage may be the emphasis on language training, giving future applicants the opportunity to study or work abroad.
Among private schools, there is a serious competition, as well as a new educational structure did not immediately inspire confidence among potential customers, worth knowing, what competitive advantages will help to take a significant place in their market. The main terms and conditions of a private school with a good reputation are the advantages:
– the presence of an educational license and state accreditation (Accreditation should subsequently be held every 6 years old, License is issued only once);
– Qualified and experienced teachers;
– the availability of in-depth programs in several subjects;
– presence of a computer class, equipped in accordance with modern standards;
– Due to the higher education institutions - schools are in demand, certificates which offer advantages for admission to higher education.

This activity has a number of shortcomings and weaknesses, who do business more risky. One of these nuances - insufficient study of the essence of private schools in the legislation, lack of specific criteria for its operation and clear requirements. Therefore, many of the founders of private secondary education institutions face difficulties in obtaining a license and business registration. for example, non-commercial nature of any object education sector means, that all school-earned money should be focused on goals, specified in the charter. The founder may only receive accrued in accordance with the employment contract salary. This provision is contained in specialized laws "On Education", which focuses on the nature of any non-profit educational institutions. Another difficulty - fairly narrow target audience: according to statistics, about 1 percent of today's students are enrolled in private schools. The majority of schools are concentrated in the capital and other big cities, while on the outskirts of the opening of a paid school may be impractical due to lack of demand. Therefore, the founder of the educational institution should be prepared to, that buzz among potential students there will be a certain time will have to operate at a loss.
A relatively small profit, It receives an average of private schools, causes, that investors are not too interested in investing in the foundation and development of the institution. Therefore, the main sources of funding, which can count the founder of the school - bank loans and personal savings.
After studying the trends and dynamics of the market, the following conclusions: the main factor, which inhibits the development of private education in the country, shortage of demand is - 47% the leaders of these organizations have called this particular feature of including negative. About 42 Market participants believe the main disadvantage of the lack of proper funding, still 34 % of all respondents said the current tax problem.

And to 2021 expected growth of the market as a whole to 2 trillion rubles. Regarding the number of private schools, at present in the country when they are there to 2100. In the short term, by increasing the percentage of consumption in this sector to 19 percent, predict the opening up 150 new schools.

For premises of educational institutions, there are strict requirements, so, picking up a building for the future school, We need to examine the existing rules. first, which should correspond to the established standards - the school area and the adjacent territory. The total size, including the school grounds will be 3 thousands of square meters or more. The size of the actual school premises should be from 1500 to 2500 quarter. m.
Over time, the room is better to acquire ownership. This will give some assurance to the founder and confidence, that its investments in material and technical equipment will not be lost, if the landlord changed his plans. As known, in rented premises, it makes sense to make repairs only if the lease term, by agreement, It is not less than 10 years old, otherwise incurred costs simply do not pay off. If it accepted the lease decision, better to choose a private building schools or kindergartens. There all technical standards are met - no need to additionally equip the room bathrooms, kitchen, hold water, electrician, and other important communications. true, lease required the permission of municipal authorities, drawn up in accordance with the law.
Search the location for a private school will be determined by several important criteria. The first - the orientation of the potential audience.

Regarding the profile of professionals, which will be adopted in the State of, required as educators, reading basic school subjects, and additional teachers and elective courses.

All teachers should have specialized education. As for the experience, most employers prefer those, with whom he leaves from 3 years or more. Nevertheless, an innovative and creative approach, peculiar to many private schools, It requires the energy of young professionals, so sometimes it makes sense to take action for the post graduates, who will bring to the formation of more and more modern trends. Not less important – provide an individual approach to each child, because it is the advantage of private schools is to personal development and the lack of standardization of education.
The head of the school does not have to be an experienced teacher. Sometimes, to perform certain tasks, are put before the Director, Manager experience required, because this position requires primarily good organizational skills and a high degree of responsibility.
