The key to a new India is in your hands
Unlock India's true potential. Become a partner with Future Sharp Skills Limited! A joint venture between Future Group and NSDC.
India has always been deemed a powerhouse of workforce and talent. It is also the reason why even though regarded as a developing country, it remains a power to be reckoned with. As India commences a new leg of advancement, every imaginable luxury offering is taking off whether it is swanky new malls, chic restaurants or sleek cars. The challenge though is quite a peculiar one, because even though new avenues for employment are available, skilled manpower is quite limited. This is a major hurdle that continues to slow down India's economic growth. By 2020, it is estimated that India will need 32 Crores professionally skilled workers. Hence, the needs of the hour are skill building institutions, high quality vocational courses and good trainers in order to enable a skilled workforce. At Future Sharp Skills Limited, we partner with entrepreneurs like you through a path-breaking venture to fulfil these very dreams. We are looking for sincere partners to drive this nationwide cause, so we can together make a difference to the grass roots of our country, by making them skilled, employable and self-sufficient.To begin with, we are looking to skill employees in the vocational fields of retail, hospitality and ITeS. Our goal is to skill 70 Lakh people by 2022, and that's where we need your support. Find out how to become an FSSL Partner by perusing the pages that follow.
