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


  • £32.94 million (CHF 38,869,200) additional net income of trained people that can be attributed to the increased skills.
  • 50,844 trained people who earn income in skilled or semi-skilled jobs within six months of completion of Sudokkho-supported training.
  • One construction sector industry skills council demonstrated a leading role in the skills development
  • 73 private training institutes capacitated for adopting the new training programmes.
  • 34 partner private training institutes registered with Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB) as competency-based training (CBT) providers, i.e., registered training organisations (RTO) for a minimum of one occupation.
  • 55,979 (men-36,871; women-19,108) private training institute graduates got trained in the Sudokkho training system.
  • £6.90 million (CHF 8,142,000) investment by industry firms/organisations.
  • 36,216 (men-3,482; women-32,734) graduated from Sudokkho supported industry-led training system.
  • 17 training packages developed that are based on Competency Standards (CS) are gender and social Inclusion responsive.
  • 271 qualified assessors (as per BTEB standard).
