Dhaka, 29 May, Abnews: Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid today said the government will set up a model training institute in the country.
“The country needs a model training institute to bring a qualitative change in the entire education system,” he told a function in a city hotel.
Secretary of Technical and Madrasah education Division Md Alamgir, senior officials of the education ministry and representatives of different local and international organizations, among others, addressed the function.
Nahid said the government has set a target of 30 percent enrolment in technical education by 2030 aiming to transform Bangladesh into an economically developed country.
“In 2009, there was only one percent student enrolment in the technical education while the current enrolment rate is 14 percent,” he added.
“We are promoting knowledge-based education to develop skilled human resources to turn Bangladesh into a middle-income country. Education without skills will create a burden for a family as well as the nation,” he said.
“To maximize the benefit of using ICT in a classroom, we need a bunch of trained, motivated and technology-friendly teachers who will make the whole process effective and successful,” the minister added.
