My Story: Mohammad Younus: Give people like me a chance, we'll build Bangladesh

Prior to the introduction of the National Skills Development Policy, entry into formal skills training required a Grade 8 education level. This meant that young people who could not afford to continue education had little option but low-paid, low-skilled informal jobs. Younus, previously an unskilled worker, has used the new pre-vocational levels to become a welder at Western Marine Shipyard and is looking forward to opening his own business.
