Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is foundation for skillful human resource needed in the labor market. A meaningful success of TVET depends on appropriate policies that govern it, availability of financial resources, equitable resource sharing, institutional set-up, social value and recognition etc. In this context, as part of the project activities, Kathmandu University is organizing an international conference the conference contributes to build our knowledge in these areas and within the conference themes.
The deliberations and discussions that will be made in the conference will help in building our knowledge on aspects like governance, quality, equity, access, and relevance of TVET. Moreover, it brings together the practices and experiences as well as theoretically informed discussion that will eventually contribute to making the sector more viable. The conference will also contribute to open-up dialogue on different possibilities to improve the sector through deliberations on entrepreneurship and employability as well as with the discussion on skills and training. Besides, strengthening as well as enlarging the network of national and international TVET stakeholders interfacing other institutional and individual partners would also be an important aspect of the conference.
The partnership on research, training, education, sharing experiences and knowledge, and establishment of the network among the diverse stakeholders of this sector will eventually contribute to strengthen the area in long run.
