“This building was constructed in seven months. Now that the construction of the building is complete, training courses can be started. As per the guidance of State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the training courses will be on vocational education. Courses on computers, English and Japanese are being started.
There is no minimum education requirement set for the courses, but due to the labour law, age is limited. Only those who are 17 years and above can attend the courses”, said Coordinator U Aung Lay Nwe @ Ko Nge of NLD education network.
With an aim to develop the country by raising the capability of youths, vocational sciences such as computer science, English, Korean, basic electrical, and basic mobile phone repair will be taught free of charge. There are plans to conduct Korean, Chinese and sewing courses later on, it is learnt.
