British Council and Microsoft India signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a three-year partnership project, 'English Skills for Youth' in May 2023. 

The English skills for Youth solution will be integrated into Engineering Colleges linked to Microsoft India’s existing NGO/partner projects. The programme aspires to enhance the life opportunities of young people, aged 18-25, particularly women, in socio-economically marginalised communities across India. The programme will support these young people to develop their English and communication skills through various self-access materials to boost their confidence for enhancing their employability prospects.
