We’re delighted to announce the launch of our third market research report for UK awarding bodies which focuses on opportunities in India, following on from the Pakistan and East Asia reports released at the end of 2016.

With the aim of better serving the Indian market generally, and Indian young professionals specifically, the British Council has undertaken this market research into the demand and supply of professional, technical and vocational qualifications to identify there is an unmet demand that exist to provide such courses in India. 

The research has focused on Young Professionals living in Tier I and selected Tier II cities, and the findings have been validated through interactions, focus group discussions, interviews and surveys with employers. The seven sectors chosen for this study are not exhaustive, but they are sectors which we feel are key strengths of the UK, and where we feel the UK stakeholders can strongly contribute.

The seven sectors are:

  • Auto and Auto Components 
  • Banking, Financial Services and Insurance 
  • Construction and Infrastructure
  • Engineering 
  • Healthcare 
  • Tourism, Hospitality and Travel
  • Leadership & Management
