Training & Development

The Myanmar Garment Human Resources Development Center (MGHRDC) is a full-time training facility in north Yangon. MGHRDC offers two regular courses free-of-charge for garment sector workers:

  • 10 day basic sewing training
  • 10 day supervisor training course

Workers who complete these foundational skills courses are better able to qualify for higher paying positions in the garment sector. Additionally, MGMA’s member factories benefit from a steady stream of qualified sewers and trained floor supervisors.

MGMA is exploring additional regular courses to introduce in MGHRDC. In the mean time, most other courses and lectures are on an ad hoc or regular basis and are typically supported by outside experts. For instance, sewing-machine tuning techniques are also being taught by experts from Juki, twice a month on Saturdays. In an effort to expand MGHRDC, MGMA has been working with the help of ministries and international organizations. Ministry of Education has granted MGMA for using an entire floor of a building in Insein GTI College.
