This technical and vocational education (TVE) profile on Bangladesh is one in a series of profiles of UNESCO member countries. It is intended to be a handy reference on TVE systems, staff development, technical cooperation, and information networking. An overview of the report appears first. Part I provides general information on the physical geography, demography, and religion; socioeconomic background; and literacy and education. Part II describes the educational structure, secondary education, and development plans. Part III deals specifically with the technical education system. It describes formal technical education and its historical development. Part IV describes major TVE organizations, such as the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Bangladesh Technical Education Board, National Council for Skill Development and Training (NCSDT) and Bureau of Manpower, Employment, and Training (BMET). It also covers noninstitutional training and teacher training. Part V addresses the issues of the employment situation of institutionally trained workers and the inadequacy of training programs and lists recommendations by the Director-General of Technical Education and the International Labour Office. Appendixes include the following: a chart of institutes under the DTE; tables of numbers of graduates from 1958-78; a chart of institutes under the BMET; and 11-item bibliography. (YLB)
