The Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) is planning to open training institutions under the name Model Technical College in all seven provinces in Nepal, reports The Himalayan Post. These institutions will be in charge to run all its programs.
CTEVT recently conducted a formal program titled ‘Technical Education and Vocational Training in the Federal Structure’ in Bhaktapur.
In the program, Pushpa Raman Wagle, member secretary at CTEVT informed the public about this plan of CTEVT to establish institutions in all provinces of the country.
Wagle said that the organization would emphasize on systematic and transparent monitoring and evaluation of technical education to improve quality of technical and vocational training in the country.
CTEVT Prof. Dr. Geeta Bhakta Joshi said that the task of adjusting CTEVT in the federal structure was currently challenging as many things were still in a state of flux. He expressed that rather than forming new institutions, it would be better to reform existing ones.
He also informed about the current financial planning and policy formulation to establish model polytechnic centres in all provinces being carried out by the government.
Likewise, Dr. Tanka Nath Sharma, an educationist, stressed the importance of CTEVT in providing employment to underprivileged people. He added that CTEVT should focus its programmes on youths.
Dinesh Chandra Devkota, a former vice-chairman of NPC talked on the declining industry and increasing remittance and said, “Now the time has come for us to review the CTEVT Act and produce skilled manpower.”
