Research and Consulting

India’s unique skilling challenges in information asymmetry, quality, scale and financing need an ecosystem for innovation that can research, design, pilot, demonstrate and scale initiatives that can deliver 10x impact. While government is playing a critical role in building the skilling ecosystem, non-governmental institutions can play a strong complementary role to drive research, experimentation and innovation, and thus, support government to create even higher scale and impact, in an accelerated fashion.

the approach of Knowledge & Research and Strategy & Consulting verticals is to work through global knowledge and research partnerships with academia, employers, industry bodies, governments bodies, vocational training providers, etc. to research, share best practices, design innovative solutions and influence policy.

Knowledge & Research

the Knowledge & Research capability is set up as a practice to work with key stakeholders of the skilling ecosystem such as central and state governments, funding organizations and industry to co-create solutions, share best practices and influence policy.

Our key research focus areas are:

growing On Job Training (OJT) amongst SMEs
safe access for skilled workforce to corridors for international migration
access to employment in local SMEs
skills for service sector employability
improving formal vocational education in India

studies completed under CSDE serve as a repository and knowledge resource for all stakeholders involved in the skill development sector in India. They will provide a better understanding of the direction of efforts and relative focus across sectors, target segments, geographies and entities.

“With the help of Future Perfect, I built my confidence to speak in English. I learnt the discipline to grow and work together in teams and now, I believe in myself”

“I was scared of talking to people earlier because I did not have confidence to speak in English. After taking Future Perfect classes, I am not only speaking in English, but also confident to face any interview. The classes helped me to not only convey my ideas and express myself in English freely, they also helped me in building skills like teamwork, effective resume writing and workplace etiquette.”
