DHAKA: ADN Edu Services Limited (a sister concern of ADN Group) has partnered with Aptech (world’s premier IT training and education service provider) to announce the grand inauguration of its four power brands - Aptech Computer Education, Arena Multimedia, Aptech Hardware & Networking Academy and Aptech English Learning Academy at KIB Auditorium (Level-1) of Krishibid Institution Bangladesh in Dhaka's Farmgate area on Monday (February 12).
This joint initiative will offer the best and most advanced training and learning system in Bangladesh. It aims to be one of the best institutions that would impart high level and updated training, and provide skills to turn aspirants into skilled professionals. At the inauguration, Kazi Keramat Ali, MP, Honorable State Minister, Ministry of Education, was present as the Chief Guest.
For over three decades, Aptech has trained millions across the globe through its various brands. With a footprint that spans across five continents, Aptech has opened up a world of opportunities for those who lack the means to acquire the skills needed to be successful professionals. The company’s efforts have not only enhanced the lives of the individuals it has touched, but also the country’s economy it has established itself in. With this new partnership, Bangladesh too will benefit from this prestigious partnership.
Addressing the audience, Kazi Keramat Ali said, “Bangladesh is a land of opportunities and we are transforming into the digital economy. To reap the benefits of digitalization we need educated and trained resources – a goal towards which the Bangladesh government is working with great commitment and dedication. The government has set up several programs to skill and train people according to their capability of learning and choice of career. I am happy to know the joint initiative of ADN EduService and Aptech, and expect that this initiative will further enhance our skill development programs across the county. It will be an opportunity for our local workforce to attain skill of global standards through this venture.”
Praising the government, Tapan Kanti Sarkar, Managing Director, ADN EduServices Ltd. said, “It is our pleasure and we are happy to introduce Aptech in Bangladesh. We stand committed to jointly work with Aptech to offer the most updated and best skills to our youth. Bangladesh has changed over the past few decades. Today, the career choices available to individuals are endless. The technological and intellectual progression of the country has sparked an outburst of opportunities across a multitude of industries, with I.T. acting as the propelling factor. I.T. can easily be referred to as the backbone of the nation. The subsequent advancements and upgrades in technology have also led to a huge growth in sectors like Hardware & Networking and Media & Entertainment as well as Communication. All this is now more evident than ever in Bangladesh. The country’s ever-growing appetite for technology, media, and entertainment has sparked a plethora of opportunities for those with the relevant skills. This is where Aptech steps in.”
Addressing the launching ceremony, Anil Pant, CEO, Aptech, said “Bangladesh is a developing and young country that is on a growth trajectory. Therefore, just like any other young country, the opportunities for growth here are tremendous. Although this is a country brimming with talent, the need of the hour is skills. Capitalizing on the opportunities, however, requires a population that is both talented and skilled. That is where this joint initiative plays a pivotal role. Around the world, Aptech has turned countless individuals into skilled professionals. Through quality education, latest content, state-of-the-art teaching facilities, cutting-edge technologies, and expert faculty, Aptech, with its power brands has made a difference in the lives of millions. Our aim is to not only help the youth of Bangladesh become job-ready professionals but to put Bangladesh on the global map as a country full of talented, skilled individuals. Bangladesh has huge potential. We are here to help unleash it.”
Earlier, ADN EduServices Limited signed Master Franchise Agreement with Aptech International. Under this agreement, ADN Eduservices Limited becomes the exclusive partner of Aptech International for its Professional Training and Learning in Bangladesh.
To propel the growth of the partnership across Bangladesh, a strong BTL activation program spanning two days was held in 22 Universities across the country. During these two days, almost 5000 interested students completed registration for attending this event.
Aptech’s presence in Bangladesh ensures that the youth today can explore a career of their interest. One that is both highly exciting and highly lucrative as compared to the otherwise mundane employment avenues available. The doorway to the world of opportunities is now open. All one needs to do is to get in touch with Aptech’s Centre in Dhanmondi. The Aptech Centre is two-storey building consisting of classrooms, office space, accommodation, along with other facilities.
