‘Youths need to be properly equipped for job market’

STAFF REPORTER, DHAKA

About 26 lakh workers are added to the job market every year but they are not equipped with right set of skills to make them employable as required.

The government is working sincerely to prepare the youth as skilled workforce to overcome the situation.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said this while speaking at a discussion organised marking World Youth Skills Day (WYSD) 2019 as the chief guest at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) in the capital yesterday.

Dipu Moni said the government will make technical education mandatory in all schools and madrasa from 2021. From the next year, it will be included in 640 schools.

Bangladeshi labourers are doing hard job in abroad but are not getting proper wages due to lack of required skills, she added.

Mentioning that there is no alternative but to acquire skill, she said Prime Minister

Sheikh Hasina has set a target for creating employment opportunity for 1.5 crore of youth within 2030.

Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmed spoke at the programme as special guest. Sajjad Hassan, secretary, Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), presided over the discussion. Faruque Hossain, executive chairman, the National Skills Development Authority (NSDA) delivered welcome address at the discussion.

Earlier a rally was brought out from the South Plaza of the National Parliament led by education minister.

Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment Minister Imran Ahmed said the youth are crying out for job opportunities but the educations they acquire do not come into exercise if they do not earn any special skills. Workers do not get due remuneration while working abroad if they are not skilled.

Referring a quote of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman ‘Build Golden Bangla by Building Golden People,’ Faruque Hossain said, ‘Those who are honest, morally strong, dedicated, welfare-oriented, and patriotic can build themselves as well as the country, are golden people.

A lion share of population is youth community and if we can make them skilled then it would be possible to build a golden Bangladesh, which was dreamt by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

NSDA is working to coordinate, strengthen skills training through setting standards, assessment and certification at national and international levels, recognition to prior learning, industry linkage, train trainers and ensure acceptability of certificates at local and global level, Faruque added.

Sajjadul Hassan said, Bangladesh is now at the growth trajectory under the leadership of prime minister and for this she has been globally well recognized. The country has attained tremendous development during last ten years, he added.
