The Ministry of Labour and Social Development has issued a statement, refuting claims that appeared in some of the local newspapers and on social media networks that it has been imposing a fee of BD2,500 on trainees who fail to complete training programmes.

The statement said that all training programmes provided by the ministry to jobseekers are free of charges, and the trainee jobseeker shall not bear any fees or expenses incurred for the training course at any stage, even if they don’t complete it successfully. “This policy has been conveyed to all institutes that train jobseekers, who are sent by the ministry, and what has been raised in this regard has been addressed in the framework of the ministry’s strategy to qualify citizens and provide them with various professional skills to accelerate their facilitation of their integration into the private sector establishments in the labour market,” the ministry said.
