15 get garment-making training

A group of people have received training on garment manufacturing under a new corporate social responsibility (CSR) partnership that the International Labour Organisation (ILO) terms ‘a big step forward’.In a media release, ILO on Tuesday said that 15 sewing machine operator trainees passed out in the first batch while another 23 got enrolled in Gazipur Technical School and College (TSC).The training has been given under CSR to bridge the gap between training and employment, it said.
ILO acts as a facilitator of better working environment and safety in Bangladesh’s main export sector – the readymade garment industry.
The government signed a tripartite agreement with employers and workers in presence of ILO that will oversee its implementations.
ILO said the CSR partnership brought itself, Gazipur TSC, CARE Bangladesh, IDLC, Far East Knitting, Interfab Shirt Manufacturing and TRZ Group together to attain the goal of “improving the skills of Bangladeshi workers”.
It said Gazipur TSC was one of the public training institutions in Bangladesh to embrace public or private partnerships as a way to improve the quality and relevance of their training programmes.
The release said industries and training institutions working closer together meant “improved courses and also guaranteed job placements after graduation; students can go straight from learning into earning.”                                                                                                                       – bdnews2.com
