Message from NVQS Team Leader
Nepal Strives for the Development of Recognized Vocational Pathways. Graduates of Vocational Training programmes and workforce with acquired skills through work in Nepal have now brighter days ahead to get their qualifications and skills recognized within and out of the country. This will make their dream come true within the next few years. To this effect, the Government of Nepal and the Government of Switzerland have signed an agreement on 22 July 2015 that will support the establishment of a National Vocational Qualification System (NVQS). A long term commitment (about 10 years) of both the governments will be materialized through the Nepal Vocational Qualification System (NVQS) Project under the Ministry of Education and implemented by Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT)/National Skills Testing Board (NSTB). The Technical Assistance of the project is provided by Swiss Foundation for Technical Cooperation (Swisscontact). The project will enable the National Skills Testing Board (NSTB) to improve their skills testing services, to develop vocational qualification frameworks for selected trades and occupations and to gradually transform the NSTB into a fully developed with adequate technical and physical capacities as the apex autonomous national organization as National Vocational Qualifications Authority (NVQA).
