BYETS project signs Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Bitopi Group

Upskilling and Reskilling, Labour market insertion
The Building Youth Employability Through Skills (BYETS) project signs a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Bitopi Group to implement workplace-based training in two Ready Made Garment (RMG) factories.

On July 30, 2023, the BYETS project and the Bitopi Group entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). This significant event marks the collaboration to introduce a sustainable training system within the workplace. This system will be implemented in two Ready-Made Garment (RMG) factories: Remi Holdings and Tarasima Apparels Limited, both under the Bitopi Group. The main goal of this collaboration is to boost the productivity of the factory workforce and establish inclusive training initiatives that cater to the need for skilled workers.

Through these partnerships, BYETS will support the RMG factories to upskill and reskill workers which will help to improve their overall productivity. The project aims to assist 50 private sector employers to either improve existing workplace-based training (WBT) systems or set up new ones within their enterprises to upskill and reskill 15,000 workers, particularly women.   

Implemented by Swisscontact and funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, BYET's ultimate goal, is to empower 25,000 youth, including 50% women with improved technical, employability, and entrepreneurial skills and link them with income-generating opportunities. The project will intervene across three sectors- RMG, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), and Agro Processing (AP) and four divisions-Dhaka, Chattogram, Khulna, and Rajshahi.
