NSDC, AIF, University of Mumbai & Dell collaborate to launch 'Project Future Ready'

National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) American India Foundation (AIF), Dell Technologies and the University of Mumbai are launching 'Project Future Ready' to equip the workforce with career skills.


The initiative will address the enhancement of employability skills and providing career guidance to college students through career mentoring, leveraging online skilling platforms and providing market aligned skills training for employability and inculcating entrepreneurial mind-set.


On completion of the program, the students will receive a certification from NSDC and University of Mumbai.


With AIF as an implementation partner and NSDC as the skilling partner, the project is set to impact over 100,000 students in Mumbai and Delhi NCR, of which 60 per cent are female.


The partnership focuses on building capacity and certifying 200 college faculties by the University of Mumbai's Garware Institute of Career Education and Development (GICED) as multi-skilled career mentors. Each of these trained faculties will further engage with 500 aspiring youth by conducting workshops on career guidance in colleges affiliated with the University of Mumbai. These students will also be trained by NSDC through its platform, a digital skilling initiative, to develop employability skills through customised courses for interview preparedness, communication, soft skills, etc.
