At scale, by providing job readiness courses in Bangladesh, we aim to reduce the unemployment rate by building a bridge between employers and university students.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

In Bangladesh, employers say there are not enough skilled candidates; on the other hand, youths say there are not enough jobs for them. We offer solutions to end this dispute by providing free-of-charge self-paced skill development courses.

How does your innovation work in practice?

We provide free online courses and blended training on job readiness, intra-personal, leadership education, and high-demand performative skills. The course completion rate of our platform is over 30 percent which is key evidence that our platform and approach work. We use an easy-to-access learning management system where learners can watch video lessons and submit assessments based on their learning.

How has it been spreading?

In the last 3 years, over 130,000 students enrolled in our courses. We have already developed 60+ courses with assessments and interactive learning materials. In the next 2-3 years, we want to create 50+ more relevant courses and reach new 100K learners. We also aim to connect at least 2000 learners with new jobs and opportunities through the job placement wing of BYLC.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

Anyone who wants to try and adopt our solution only needs to create a free-of-charge account on our website. Then find their desired courses and enroll for free. It's this simple.
