Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on May 08, 2016 said that the interest of students to study technical and vocational education is increasing day by day.

For this, he said, the government is giving importance to ensuring quality technical and vocational education in the country. In 2009, the number of students in the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) was less than one per cent of students but now they comprise 13 percent, he said.

The minister said this at a workshop on "To Utilize $100 Million Additional Funds" provided by the World Bank for a skill and training enhancement project (STEP) at Hotel Sonargaon in the city. Senior Secretary for Public Administration Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury, Secretary-in-Charge of the Ministry for Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment Shamsun Nahar and Education Secretary Md. Sohrab Hossain also spoke at the function, among others.

Nurul Islam Nahid said that a technical teachers training centre would be set up soon. He said, this STEP fund will be used for "improving" vocational skills and employability of 420,000 Bangladeshi youths to help them find better jobs in local and foreign markets.

World Bank Country Director for Bangladesh Qimiao Fan said, "A more skilled workforce is crucial for Bangladesh to realize its aspiration of becoming an upper-middle-income country. For this, it needs to invest more in education, skills and training."

The additional financing would help improve the quality of technical and vocational education and training. It will also support critical reforms to enable the country to prepare a globally competitive workforce for better-paid jobs. The additional funds will bolster STEP's initiatives, till 2019, to increase enrolment, particularly of female students and help improve teaching facilities in the technical institutions, said the WB Country Director.

The project STEP, began in 2010, has already provided stipends to more than 110,000 poor diploma students in 93 private and public polytechnic institutions. In addition, nearly 77,000 youths have received free six-month vocational training in 38 trades, including electrical, automotive and garment sectors. Nearly one-third of the students were women and 95 percent of the students completed their courses. Within six months of completing the courses, 42 percent of the trainees got jobs, project details have revealed.
