BISD Online
Online, IT-based skills training

When COVID-19 struck Bangladesh in 2020, skills training needed to shift online. In November 2020, BRAC ISD Online was introduced, with the goal to provide online training on contemporary, in-demand skills to young people in Bangladesh aged between 18-35.

Learners are required to have a minimum qualification of high school completion. Two training service providers - Anudip Foundation and CodersTrust Bangladesh - have been onboarded to carry out quality and impactful training, to lead learners to immediate income generation. In total, we are now offering seven courses on employability and IT-based skills.
