STORIES OF CHANGE
TVET Reform is not just about new ways of doing things; it is about changing the mindset of the TVET sector. If the sector is to meet the increasing demands of the global labour market, it needs to focus quickly on becoming flexible, inclusive, efficient and collaborative.
In order to meet labour demands in Bangladesh, TVET must be delivering quality skills that employers want, and these needs are constantly changing. Through improving the responsiveness and flexibility of TVET institutions, reform will enable institutions to better meet industry needs.
In order for quality training to be delivered and assessed in Bangladesh, TVET practitioners need to move away from lecturing and towards practical, competency-based methods. Reform will encourage this by building the capacity of managers to understand the need for it and by improving TVET teacher training methods.
Stronger relationships between training institutions and industry will ensure that graduates have the skills needed by employers, so that they can together meet the increasing needs of the labour market. Reform will encourage these partnerships through Industry Skills Councils and encourage best practice through Centres of Excellence.
One of the key reform objectives is to make TVET accessible to all, including youth with low literacy and numeracy, child workers, women and rural communities and persons with disabilities. To do this, reform is concentrating on removing policy-related barriers, such as minimum education levels, and also physical barriers, such as transport systems which are not gender-friendly.
