Vocational education

Vocational education

The newly appointed state minister of education ministry, Kazi Keramat Ali, while addressing a discussion titled 'Ensuring of Quality Technical Education in the Perspective of Skills and Development" at city's Institution of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh (IDEB) auditorium recently said that the quality of technical as well as madrasa education would be enhanced in the near future as the government is relentlessly working to improve the standard of vocational and madrasa education across the country.

Thousands of youths in the country are bearing the curse of unemployment due to lack of adequate technical or vocational education. Frustration stemming from joblessness is dampening their spirits. In fact, they are liability for the country instead of assets. Time-befitting technical and vocational education and skills is one way of absolving them of the stigma of joblessness. There are people who, equipped with proper skills, even do not care for employments, rather they create employments for themselves and others by becoming entrepreneurs.     

These people have great demand in their native land and in the global job markets. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshis went to different countries, particularly in the Middle East countries, in search of greener pastures. But all of them are not skilled workers. Those who went abroad without equipping themselves with the requisite vocational education and skills are doing menial jobs. Since they have no bargaining power, they have to accept whatever jobs are offered to them.

The opportunity to get government jobs is very limited in the country. After completion of education thousands of youths are crowding the job market every year. But very few of them are fortunate enough to get the same.     

There are immense possibilities for the youths of the country to become self-reliant by engaging themselves in various income-generating activities. They can do it by gaining technical education and skills from the technical training centres.  There are technical training centres at the district headquarters. After receiving training from the centres the enterprising youths can go abroad for suitable jobs. Those who are not willing to go abroad can set up projects of their choice.

In this way they can achieve solvency and improve the economic conditions of their families remarkably. Such technical training centres can also be set up at upazila levels to facilitate the people living at the grassroots level. The government should put emphasis on making the country’s technical and vocational training institutions need-oriented and effective for generating more competent workforce to meet the growing national needs.
