A proposal to strengthen TVET and skills data in Bangladesh

This report was commissioned by the ILO as part of its Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Reform Project in Bangladesh, which is funded by the European Commission and being implemented by the ILO. The central objective of the report is to present a proposal for a TVET data system in Bangladesh which will strengthen monitoring of TVET delivery so that the supply and demand for skills can be more closely aligned and to inform future policy, management and investment decisions in TVET.

"The TVET & Skills Data Proposal has been prepared by the National Institute of Labour Studies (NILS) from Flinders University in Australia with support from data specialists from ILO Geneva. It is the result of extensive work with local stakeholders to develop a new model for the collection, management and analysis of data on the supply and demand for skills. The report proposes key data sets that should be collected and proposes a model of analysis to assist decision making by government and industry. The proposal has been submitted to the government and will assist with establishment of a national data cell within the NSDC Secretariat".
