Session Brief:

We have come a long way in bridging the skill needs of the BPO Industry and the Education Curriculum that Institutions imparts. We have been also successful in lowering the industry burden of skills development through better screening, effective training with financial support by both Government & Private Sector.

We have succeeded in creating 45,000 sustainable jobs over the years and have consistently increased the value & sophistication of their services to local & global clients. The need to ensure knowledgeable workforce are consistently developed to support with human capital, our country’s vision to become a Developed Country by 2041. The need for continued support by the Education Industry & the Policy makers are vital to ensure our youth are gainfully employed.

The biggest challenge our industry is facing now is the lack of language proficiency by the graduates. Unfortunately the language we are having the greatest problem is Bangla. Our members are unable to fill tens of thousands of current job vacancies, due to the lack of the  candidates ability to communicate their thoughts and ideas.

The need to make compulsory, Language Proficiency Certification by a National Body in Bangla and / or other languages, without which one cannot receive a University Degree.

Expected Outcome:

Guidance and alignment of the vision to ensure that our future Graduates have the required skills and ability to communicate and able to secure appropriate and meaningful employment.

The need to ensure skills and knowledges are reviewed and updated based on the fast changing skills requirement of the Industry regularly.

Target Audience:

Ministry of Posts, Telecommunication and Information Technology, ICT Division, BPO Companies, BPO Employees, University Students, College Students.
