“Globalisation and technological transformation have increased the demand for skilled personnel across the world. Businesses around the world are struggling to meet the demand for talented workers, prompting India to expedite its efforts to make India the ‘Skill Capital’ of the world by equipping youth with new-age skills to meet this demand. We are striving to create an ‘employment ready’ India by reaping the demographic dividend of the young labour force and equipping them with in-demand job training. We believe that these young students will act as ambassadors for Indian talent and will inspire others to take up skill training for better prospects.”
