Building the capacity of Career Guidance Officers in Bangladesh
As part of the ILO Skills-21 project, the ITCILO is training a group of Career Guidance Officers (CGOs) in Dhaka, from 28 July to 5 August 2019.
The CGOs come from seven model TVET institutions from all over the country. The training has been designed to equip the CGOs with skills and tools to help TVET students and their families make effective career choices. The proposed tools have been specifically developed to suit the cultural and economic realities of Bangladeshi students.
This training is a part of a process that will support the model institutions in setting up career guidance and job placement cells. Subsequently, a Career Guidance and Job Placement Kit will be developed, and monitoring and evaluation systems will be integrated into the operations of the cells.
