FutureSkills Prime launches #MyPromiseToIndia to Empower Citizens to Upskill and Get Job Ready
New Delhi (India), August 14: In a G20 meeting, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi reinforced the importance of upskilling a global workforce in advanced technology. Taking forward this vision, FutureSkills Prime is rallying the citizens of the country to make a promise to skill, reskill and upskill.

The world of technology is changing rapidly, making it more crucial than ever for individuals, companies, and nations to make upskilling an imperative.

Making ‘today’ the ideal time for students and working professionals to leverage this opportunity and build their careers.

Patil College of Engineering, Pune and Nandha College of Technology in Chennai are showcasing their support by putting up their promise cards on India’s Promise Wall.
