EU ambassador visits Barisal welders supported by ILO

Ambassador and Head of EU Delegation Pierre Mayaudon included a visit to Barisal School and College during his first significant field visit outside of Dhaka on 18 November 2014. At the school he toured the welding lab which was equipped by the ILO-implemented, EU-funded TVET reform project.

The Ambassador arrived in Bangladesh just two months ago. After visiting the welding lab and speaking to staff and local businessmen, the Ambassador said: "My visit here today reflects the EU's commitment to Bangladesh in general and to skills development in particular."
Barisal Technical School and College is a registered training organisation (RTO) authorised to offer Welding programmes at the Levels 1 and 2 of the National Technical and Vocational Qualifications Framework, and will be offering similar programmes in electrical installation and others in the near future.
