Member WB seeks KCCI cooperation for survey

KARACHI - Member of World Bank -TVET Identification Mission under Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Program (BBSYDP), David Fretwell along with his fellow member Yasin Janjua visited KCCI to notify KCCI members on Employer Survey Appraisal. In his address during the meeting, he explained that for the survey they need KCCI cooperation with TVET. This survey is of important nature because as a result of such similar survey 21 thousand pupils had been trained and became graduates last year, said KCCI statement issued here Saturday. This program (BBSYDP) is only operating in Sindh and it includes 14 years of education and short courses which would enable the students to access in to Labour Market firmly. He informed that they intend to arrange 75,000 more trained graduates for the next 2 years and so it becomes a major investment in human resources. The World Bank Member said the reason behind conducting this survey is to get information through follow-ups from those 21,000 graduates, if they found this program being efficient enough in getting to jobs. Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) has an important part in this survey because the survey would identify if any of those 21000 graduates have found jobs or are working for any of the firms/businesses owned by the 16000 members of KCCI. For the technical design of trainee follow-up surveys Mr. David said that he seeks involvement of KCCI members about surveys approach that how training providers will get involved, questionnaire contents, trainee graduate sample selection, implementation of surveys and input of data and analysis. He said that creation of awareness for their programs among the people throughout the whole province has been very transparent so far.
