In the midst of Bangladesh’s unemployment challenges, there’s a glimmer of hope emerging through collaborative efforts aimed at bridging the skills gap. DIPTI had the honor of hosting a distinguished delegation from Centurion University of Technology and Management, led by Prof. D.N. Rao, Managing Trustee and Vice President.

The discussions centered around how skills partners can play a pivotal role in mitigating the skills gap, which has long been a barrier to employment opportunities in the country. A key focus was placed on the significance of adopting a learning approach based on occupations, with a particular emphasis on the implementation of Micro-Credentials.

These Micro-Credentials offer targeted and specialized learning opportunities that directly address the specific skills needed in today’s job market. By aligning education with industry demands, individuals can acquire the competencies required to thrive in their chosen fields.

The event was graced by the esteemed presence of the Honorable Chairman of the DIU and Daffodil Family, Dr. Md Sabur Khan, the Chief Operating Officer, Daffodil Family, Dr. Mohamed Emran Hossain, the Executive Director, DIPTI, Mr. Rathindra Nath Das, along with other concern heads, underscored the importance of such collaborative initiatives in driving positive change. With the commitment of key stakeholders and the implementation of innovative learning approaches, we’re paving the way towards a brighter future for employment and economic growth in Bangladesh.
