In collaboration with Infosys, the Financial Times has announced the launch of free FT content on Infosys’ Springboard education platform in India. The FT says it will now provide curated content to registered users on Infosys Springboard, a free digital learning and reskilling platform for students. The users will be able to read FT news stories on different themes including, India, education, work and careers, technology, climate and top trending news stories.

The free access will be provided via FT Schools, the FT’s philanthropic initiative to provide open FT digital access to students around the world. The programme provides journalism to help students broaden their knowledge and leverage trusted articles and resources for their educational needs.

Director of Strategic Partnerships James Lamont said: "We appreciate the next generation’s increasing need for reliable, trusted news, and we know that many students and educators around the world find FT content an invaluable resource for their studies. We are delighted to collaborate with Infosys to bring FT content to a wider audience in India.”

Infosys EVP and Head - education, training and assessment Thirumala Arohi, said: “A key focus area for Infosys is to accelerate digital innovation and improve access to evolving skills. Infosys has made a commitment to digitally skill over 10 million people by 2025 and bridge the digital divide by leveraging its platform Infosys Springboard to democratise quality education. Through our collaboration with the Financial Times, we look forward to further deepening our portfolio of offerings from Infosys Springboard for the Indian student community.”

The FT says this engagement is part of a wider strategic collaboration between them and Infosys. This includes a subscription partnership with FT Professional – which serves nearly 8,000 businesses, government and education institutions around the world – for Infosys’ employee base.
