It was done by outsourced research institute (Dhaka University) with an aim to document the implementation of training programme targeting workers in RMG sector, which was carried out by the trade union organizations (NCCWE and IBC). The monitoring included several components: (1) training observation, (2) assessment of trainer and co-trainer, (3) development of database of trainees, (4) pre-post knowledge tests, (5) post-training evaluation of training by trainees (venue, food) and (6) financial monitoring (distribution of training allowances). The monitoring was performed by trained documentation officers. Documentation Team passed 2-days orientation to perform the documentation task efficiently.
