Southtech Training Program
Create a comprehensive training plan, empower end users with live, and online courses – and ultimately boost software and technology proficiency across your organization.
Providing training is an integral part of Southtech’s business without which none of its projects would have ever succeeded. Since inception Southtech has trained thousands of new users of computers and software. Thus far we have organized and provided specialized and customized trainings to a large number of organizations in Bangladesh and abroad. As an example, Southtech provided training to 3,000+ system users during the implementation of a microfinance software for BRAC, the world’s largest non-governmental development organization.
Southtech, in partnership with the ICT Ministry, has provided “Freelancer to Entrepreneur” training for the ‘She Power’ project. Southtech has trained 960 women, between the ages of 18-40 years, all with a minimum HSC qualification. The training encompassed topics from basic Computer Skills to Professional Graphic Designing to Freelancing and Entrepreneurship. Freelancer to Entrepreneur training has provided trainees the necessary skills and knowledge to start a freelancing career and become self-sufficient as an entrepreneur. The students were examined through a 5 month long paid internship at the end of the course. The 9-month period intensive programme aimed at “Sustainable Development for Women through ICT”, has helped produce skilled manpower according to the needs of the international market.
JAVA TRAINING PROGRAMME:
Southtech has provided Java Training to a group of 20 trainees in a 3 month paid internship as a part of the Fast Track Future Leader (FTFL) programme, funded by LICT (Leveraging ICT for Growth, Employment and Governance) under the ICT Division. The full stack Java training programme, supervised by the Centre for Project Management & Information System (PMIS), University of Dhaka, was conducted by trainers that also included sessions with in-house specialists. The trainees upon successful completion of the program are now working as Java Programmers at Southtech.
We have also provided Java training to developers in Southtech Bhutan (Private) Ltd, a subsidiary of Southtech.
Southtech completed a free 5 day long computer training program for all the staff at Aloghar; now a free library for children and adults to provide quality educational services and technological support for building up an enlightened community. “Aloghar” meaning “a house of light”, is an initiative of DISA (Development Initiative for Social Advancement) that started initially as a Child Rights Centre back in 2003 with the financial support of UCEP Bangladesh and Save the Children Sweden-Denmark. The staff of Aloghar were trained with the aim that they may help both children and adult users of the library to make best use of the Internet for their learning and for gathering useful information.
