The UPS India Technology Centres and the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support skill development for India’s diverse talent pool. The MoU was signed in the presence of Shri. Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India.

According to the India Skills Report, only 49% of Indian youth meet employability standards, highlighting the critical need for initiatives to close the education-employment gap. India’s goal of becoming a US $5 trillion economy is a collaborative effort that will unlock opportunities for India’s workforce. Industry ready technology skills can help meet this goal by preparing India’s youth for local and global opportunities.

The UPS India Technology Centres and NSDC will provide skilling programs and initiatives focused on technology, logistics, and supply chain management, including:

Community bootcamps, workshops, career counselling, technical training, management and soft skills training, aimed to prepare India’s next generation workforce.
Continue to work with similar youth initiatives such as the Tamil Nadu government’s skill development program – ‘Naan Mudhalvan’.

“UPS is excited to support the government’s aim to skill our youth with speed and high standards to achieve its vision of a ‘Skilled India’. We are grateful for the support from the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and the NSDC. Through our partnership with the NSDC, UPS and the UPS India Technology Centres are committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable world that empowers local talent from diverse background and shine a spotlight on the vast potential of India’s talent pool.” said Dr. Subramani Ramakrishnan, Vice President, UPS India Technology Centre.
