In 2006 the Government of Bangladesh initiated a major overhaul of Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Bangladesh, with support from the European Union. The project, implemented by the International Labour Office (ILO), has achieved a couple of ‘first’s’ in the country’s history: it has produced a National Skill Development Policy, a National Qualifications Framework, and it promotes social inclusion.
One of the many casualties of crises is education. Natural disasters, wars and protracted conflict are disrupting children’s access to schools and contributing to higher drop-out and lower completion rates. Schools can also be destroyed or taken over by military groups, and prolonged conflicts can leave them without trained teachers, resources or funding. In 2015, 80 million children and young people’s education was affected by humanitarian emergencies and protracted crises.

Exclusion usually starts very early in life. Therefore, schools have a
central role in promoting fairer and more inclusive communities. This begins
in the classroom, with learner needs and experiences at the centre of all
decisions making. EPN's 2nd seminar will focus on how to achieve inclusion
in education for groups that are often excluded. Join us

The global growth of private actors in education presents many challenges
from a human rights perspective. As discussed during a side-event at the
Human Rights Council last year, increasing privatisation of education is
pushing already vulnerable groups deeper into poverty and furthering social
divisions, making it more difficult for states to fulfil their core
obligation to provide quality public education for all. Unfortunately, the
issues discussed last year have become more acute and the questions raised at
that time remain unanswered; in particular, which policies consistent with
human rights frameworks need to be adopted to effectively respond to these
challenges.
