India will enter into partnership with Britain on areas of teachers' training, vocational education and skill development.
Discussion on these matters will be taken forward during the visit of HRD Minister Kapil Sibal to the UK.
"We are exploring collaboration in areas of skill development, vocational training and teachers' training," Sibal told reporters today just before leaving for the UK and Scotland.
During his four-day visit, Sibal will attend the Learning and Technology World Forum and the 2nd UK-INDIA Education Forum there.
Two separate MoUs -- one between IIT, Ropar, and Glasgow Research Partnership in Engineering, and another between IISER, Pune, and Southeast-India Partnership Network -- will be signed during Sibal's visit.
He will hold talks with Lord Mandelson, British Secretary of State for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and Douglas Alexander, the British Secretary of State for Department for International Development, UK.
