This year the UK is partnering at the 6th FICCI Global Skills Summit which is around vocational education and skills in India.

It offers a platform for people to converge, aggregate and implement the skills development story. The UK has experience in developing localised training programmes in over 130 countries around the world. It also has the capacity to deliver at a large scale – delivering skills to over 3m learners a year in the UK alone, including over 500,000 apprentices. The UK has established organisations with over 100 years of experience in delivering world class skills.

Through local partnerships, India is already host to many of the UK’s most experienced and innovative skill development providers.

The event will see the launch of the booklet (Delivering World Class Skills – India –UK Partnerships), that showcases some of these partnerships. A UKIBC delegation of leading UK skills providers will participate in the event. If you are an Indian skill provider keen to work with UK colleges or if you are a company looking for world class skills for their workforce, come and meet us at Stall No 9 on 4 and 5 September at FICCI for further details.
