What are Technical Colleges*

The Bangladesh Government is funding Technical College across Bangladesh in areas where there are skills needs, a high youth population and a strong industry base. Technical Colleges provide young Bangladeshis with the opportunity to commence their training in a traditional trade through an Apprenticeship while at the same time completing academic subjects leading to a year to a year 12 certificates.

What is the advantage of a Technical College

A great way to start training for a career before you leave school is with an Apprenticeship. You can get training, work experience, a nationally recognized qualification and earn a wage.

Australian Technical Colleges provide you with the opportunity to commence training in a traditional trade through an Apprenticeship while at the same time studying academic subjects, relevant to trade careers and leading to a year 12 certificates.

About the Technical Colleges

The principal objective of the Bangladesh Colleges is to address the current and future skills needs of the Bangladesh economy through the achievement of a number of key goals, such as:

* promoting pride and excellence

in trade skills training for young

people;

* providing skills and education in

a flexible learning environment;

* having an industry-led governing

body for each Technical College

which sets out its strategic

directions and performance objectives;

* Providing trade training that is relevant to industry and that leads to nationally recognized qualifications through Apprenticeships, and providing academic and vocational and technical education which is relevant to trade careers and leads to a year 12 certificate.

A new choice for young people

Technical Colleges are for students in year 11 and 12. Students enter into an School based Apprenticeship. Which leads to a nationally recognized qualification; study academic subjects, leading to a Year 12 certificate; and also gain IT, employability and business skills, enabling them to run their own business if they desire. they can also keep the option to go on to further study at university.

The Colleges provide an incentive for more students to stay on at school and encourage more students to pursue a trade qualification. They expand student choice by providing another pathway to a career involving trades. Facilities and educational services offered by the College are high quality, establishing them as centres of excellence in trade training, thereby raising the profile of vocational and technical education in schools and strengthening the training system as a whole. The College play an important role in expanding School based Apprenticeships, particularly in the traditional trade's areas.

A real job

The Technical College experience offers students much more

that just a pathway towards nationally recognized trade

qualifications. Students study relevant academic subjects,

ones that ensure that the link between academia and the real

world is recognized, they gain hands on skills in a real workplace

environment, real working hours and conditions and gain skills

and knowledge that allows them to start a rewarding career in

the trades and eventually run their own business.

How are Technical Colleges different from other schools and registered training organizations*

Technical Colleges are specialist schools with high quality facilities providing tuition for years 11 and 12 students where all students will undertake academic studies relevant to a career in the trades and trades-related vocational course, as well as developing employability and entrepreneurial skills. This combination, together with employment as School-based Apprentices, makes it essential that delivery of services to the students is through flexible delivery arrangements and timetables.

Industry play a pivotal role in both leading and supporting the Colleges, particularly through the governance and the employment of the students as a School based Apprentice.

The College provides students with the opportunity to pursue trades training, leading to a nationally accredited qualification, as well as complete their senior secondary education. Students at the Colleges will have the opportunity to commence a School based Apprenticeship. The Technical Colleges operate autonomously, with a governing body chaired by a local business or industry representative and involving local communities.

wear. Only students who are dressed in complete and correctly

worn uniform will be permitted to attend class.
