A Decade of Skills Development: The ILO in Bangladesh 2008-2018

For more than a decade, the ILO has worked closely with the Government of Bangladesh, and a network of social partners, to reform the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector and to improve access for people to increase their skills and employability, in particular, youth, women and people from vulnerable groups.

The International Labour Organization’s (ILO) landmark programmes are aimed at strengthening and improving the environment for industry skills development, addressing the mismatch between the supply and demand for skills training, and, drive the increased employability of millions of young women and men.
Like many of its Asian neighbours, Bangladesh faces a major challenge trying to develop modern, employment-based skills for tens of millions of young women and men.
