STAFF REPORT LHR: The four-day “Refresher Training of Trainers” conducted by ILO Pakistan with the collaboration of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) at HEC Regional Campus has concluded with the distribution of completion certificates among the participants.
The training was part of the Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB) programme, which is ILOs global management-training initiative focusing on starting and improving small businesses as a strategy for creating more and better employment, particularly in emerging economies.
The overall SIYB objective is to contribute to the economic development by establishing/strengthening enterprises and creating new and better jobs.
This training conducted by SIYB senior master trainer Gemunu Wijesena, who had come all the way from Sri Lanka for this purpose, was a follow-up of the Training of Trainers (ToT) imparted earlier to heads and supervisors of Business Incubation Centers (BICs) established at leading universities across Pakistan.
“It was also an opportunity to evaluate the impact that the earlier training had had and listen to the experiences of the participants and success stories of the entrepreneurs they had mentored, says Munawar Sultana, Officer in Charge of ILO Pakistans Gender Equality For Decent Employment (GE4DE) project.
