Skill Sector Councils

GCM Thematic Cluster Areas: 
Irregular migration and regular pathways
Labor mobility, Labour-Market Matching, Private Sector and Public-Private Partnership, Sustainable Development

A key driver of current efforts to reform skills development in Bangladesh is the need to strengthen linkages between industry and the national training system. Industry Skills Councils (ISCs) help to achieve this by bringing together the major enterprises and industry bodies within an industry sector to discuss skill development issues affecting their sector.

ISCs organise industry along sectoral lines to provide specific advice on occupations and skills in demand, and to identify key skills priorities in sectors. They ensure a tripartite approach to continuously improving the skills development system by bringing employers, workers and government representatives together. As ISCs continue to develop, they will become the primary point of contact for skill issues within industries in Bangladesh.
