El proyecto

Pri­vate sec­tor com­pa­nies in Bangladesh constantly iden­tify low skill lev­el amongst the labour force as one of the fun­da­men­tal con­straints to Bangladeshi growth. The tar­geted Ready Mar­ket Gar­ment and Con­struc­tion sec­tors are grow­ing and face a short­age of skilled work­ers. They have tremen­dous po­ten­tial to ab­sorb labour and offer em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for large num­bers of un­e­d­u­cated men and women.​ SEP-B aims to stim­u­late pri­vate sec­tor in­vest­ment in train­ing for poor peo­ple. Work­ing with the pri­vate sec­tor, the pro­gramme will sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of skills-train­ing mar­ket and in­cen­tivise mar­ket play­ers to in­vest in on-the-job and off-the-job skills train­ing.

SEP-B tar­gets two sec­tors with high growth po­ten­tial and abil­ity to ab­sorb large num­bers of poor peo­ple in skilled and semi-skilled jobs: RMG (Ready Made Gar­ments) and Con­struc­tion (of houses and build­ings) in­clud­ing se­lected input sup­ply chains. Four core prin­ci­ples are cru­cial in build­ing a mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tion­ship be­tween pri­vate train­ing providers and em­ploy­ers:

  • Fair and open competition between prospective recipients of funds Targeting of those currently excluded from government training institutes
  • Payment for training providers based on employment outcomes
  • A Market Development Approach, with a focus on market-based solutions of TVET systems


During pre-implementation phase in 2014, the assumptions made in the business case were validated through secondary and primary data research, including labour market and skills training market assessment, visits to Partner Training Providers (PTPs), meetings with employers and industry associations. The programme has developed a Gender and Social Inclusion Strategy, Monitoring and Results Measurements (MRM) Framework, Value for Money Framework, Grants Management manual, Communications Strategy and an Operations Manual. SEP-B is currently under implementation phase and will launch its activities by February 2015.
