CGTI completes training first batch of 43 workers
Aug '17
The Cambodia Garment Training Institute (CGTI) has completed training the first batch of 43 workers from three garment factories. They are now working as assistant supervisors and team leaders in the textile industry of Cambodia. Their training took place in July this year. Nearly 1 million people are associated with the garment industry in Cambodia.

CGTI has tied up with Singapore-based fashion institute TaF.tc International for training the workers. For the first three years, the local people will obtain training from Singaporean trainers, who then will head the training programme, said a Cambodian leading daily quoting Andrew Tey, director of CGTI.

At present, CGTI will focus on training the supervisors and shop floor team leaders. The professional diploma courses for university graduates will begin from September. Further, the institute is also planning to introduce courses for middle level managers.

"We have to understand the needs of the industry. I think that right now Cambodia lacks a soft training institute, so that’s why GMAC is here to provide the members’ needs and to help them as the factories need to improve the productivity together with the rise of wages," said Tey.  

CGTI was built by the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia with a soft loan from the French Development Agency (AFD). CGTI was officially inaugurated in August this year. (RR)
