The award of certificates to 19 De-suups on 25 May after the 7-month course in ICT: Robotics marks the completion of 100 DSPs since its launch last year. A total of 2,435 De-suups have been trained so far in various innovative, scalable and novel skilling programmes, delivered by national and international experts.
The De-suung Skilling Programs are high standard, short term and accelerated trainings programmes which intend to skill, up-skill and re-skill De-suups. The Program has been inspired by His Majesty The King’s vision to impart De-suups with high level of skills and competencies so that they are able to realize their full potential and gain meaningful livelihood opportunities.
The first three DSPs were launched on 15 April 2021. They were ICT- Networking, Web Development and E-Commerce in Thimphu, Carpentry and Woodworks in Bumthang and Aesthetic Lighting & Electrical Works in Punakha. As of today, 1,217 De-suups are availing various DSPs. DSP aspires to promote diverse skills and talents among Bhutanese youth in the coming years with many more programmes as well as through post-programme engagements both within the country and abroad.
