BSDI certificate giving ceremony

BANGLADESH Skill Development Institute (BSDI) offers certain technical vocational courses such as Electrical, Electronics, Hospitality and Catering, Driving and Automobiles to students who cannot continue with higher education due to poor SSC or HSC examination results. The main idea is to convert this unskilled workforce into productive and job oriented community.

Among 120 students 102 completed their courses successfully. The management of BSDI organised a certificate giving ceremony to these students on March 16 at Daffodil Institute of Information Technology (DIIT) campus.

M Anwarul Kabir Talukder, sate mnister, Ministry of Finance was present as chief guest at the ceremony while Nurul Islam Moni, chairman, ICT parliamentary committee and Sabur Khan, chairman, BSDI, Daffodil Group and Daffodil International University were also present as special guests.

In his welcome speech, Dr Fokhray Hossain, chief course coordinator, DIIT and BSDI gave a background on BSDI, which was established in 2003 as a non-profit making organisation. The idea of the institute was to provide vocational training to the younger generation. To save the young generation from going astray, BSDI converts this unskilled workforce into productive and job oriented community.

Other speakers mostly emphasised on the human improvement factor. Sabur khan made his points clearer as he mentioned Malaysia as an emerging nation and the overall population quality took the country to the highest point to be recognised worldwide. Certificates were then given to students passing the courses from that institute.
