Make quality vocational training aspirational for both youth and employers whereby youth sees it as a matter of choice and employer acknowledges the productivity linked to skilled workforce by paying the requisite premium. (National Policy for Skills Development and Entrepreneurship, 2015; Ministry of Skills Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India)

Providing high quality skills training for young people is a priority for both the UK and India. We at the British Council support opportunities that promote trust between the two countries and enhance the skills and employability of young people. Through our work in Skills, we seek to build partnerships in order to create awareness, identify best practices and build mutual contacts through high quality research work, projects, study tours and events.
