About us

Dakchyata: TVET Practical Partnership is a skills development programme, delivered by British Council in partnership with the Government of Nepal, to realise the potential of young people who – equipped with the right skills – can contribute to national economic success in the agricultural, tourism and construction industries.

Public-private partnerships for a more responsive TVET system

Nepal’s prosperity will increase when the gap between skills demand and supply narrows. Through public-private partnerships, Dakchyata promotes shared responsibility between employers, education and training institutions and the government to develop high-quality skills training to bridge gaps between supply and demand in the labour market.

Delivering benefits for all

Our vision for the future of Nepal’s TVET system see young people with greater access to training and meaningful livelihood options which open doors to employment opportunities. Employers are better able to plan for business growth with increased access to information on labour supply and demand, and can hire staff with the knowledge and skills they need, when they need them. Training providers are prospering because they are delivering relevant skills training in partnership with industry, valued by both employers and students alike. Finally, government is better able to use public investment to deliver on its commitments in securing the country’s future prosperity.

Who we work with

Dakchyata works with a range of government and public and private sector partners, including the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT), private sector organisations including chambers of commerce, small businesses and technical training providers and local municipalities across the country.

Dakchyata is part of the European Union-funded TVET Practical Partnership programme in Nepal which is managed by the British Council in partnership with the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT).
