Jessore Computer Training
Jessore Computer Training Program was designed to familiarize students with computers and their applications.
Due to a shift in technology, the demand for employees in Bangladesh with relevant computing skills is large. Bangladesh’s dramatic rise in international call centres has highlighted the immense shortage of skilled personnel. The call centre industry in Bangladesh was worth around $12 billion in 2013.
Students in this program learn fundamental concepts of computer hardware and software and become familiar with a variety of computer and internet based applications, including word processing, spreadsheets, databases, multimedia presentations, email, and search engines. Coursework also includes activities that explore social and ethical issues related to information technology.

“I have a son, and after the death of my husband I started living with my father. I always thought I would not be able to have a better life or future. There was extreme poverty. I wanted to support my family, and also help my child go to school. From a relative I heard about the Jessore Training School. There, I learned the basic knowledge to become a computer operator. I learned MS Word, Power Point, MS Excel, MS Access, Visual Basic, Internet and Graphics program. After completion of the program I received the certificate through a graduation ceremony. I was so happy on that day. Later I applied for a job in Credit Union at Jessore. I am working as computer operator since then. Now my son is going to school and I am supporting my family. It’s a joy … because I am now empowered and standing on my own feet.”
