There is a mismatch between the demand and supply of relevant skills is considered to be the key reason behind unemployment and inefficiencies of the labor market. According to ILO, in Bangladesh alone, each year almost 2 million youths are joining the country's 82 million labor force. These youths often face hassles of going to multiple offices to collect the right information regarding skills, education, employment and entrepreneurship that leads to spending huge costs and time. A significant portion of these youths live in the disadvantaged areas (i.e., hill tracts, river islands) where youth unemployment is on the rise because of social, economic, political and geographical seclusion. Furthermore, the stakeholders of skills, education, employment and entrepreneurship - youth, skills providers and industries and employers usually operate in silo approach, without any linkages among them, which ultimately leads to widening supply-demand gap.
National Intelligence for Skills, Education, Employment & Entrepreneurship (NISE) is a one-stop data platform that is matchmaking among its broad range of stakeholders - government departments under ministries relevant to skills development, public and private skills service providers, industries, and youth. The core mission of this platform is to bridge the gap between the demand and supply sides to create employment opportunities for the youth. All the stakeholders are brought under one umbrella to make sure that quality and demand driven skills development trainings are accessible by the youth while adequate and appropriate job placement announcements can be reached to the right target audience. This platform is helping the country to accomplish SDG 4- Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all (Target 4.3- Equal access to affordable technical, vocational and higher education, Target 4.4- Increase the number of people with relevant skills for financial success and Target 4.5- Ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations) and SDG 8- Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all (Target 8.5- Full employment and decent work with equal pay, Target 8.6- Promote youth employment, education and training) by 2030 successfully and become a developed country by 2041.
NISE provides increased access to information, is designed for social inclusivity, and provides opportunities for meaningful employment. A couple of ways NISE bridges the digital divide includes: 1. Youths in hard-to-reach areas are able to access to AI based career guidance, skills trainings, job forecast, apprenticeship opportunities, business and entrepreneurship guidance, migration suggestions, etc. 2. While designing the platform's architecture, priority has been given to the people with disabilities to make this system socially comprehensive. For their swift accessibility, the platform offers specialized services - i.e., voice command, reading guide, font customization, cursor customization etc.
