Dakchyata: TVET Practical Partnership is a skills development project which operates across three industry sectors in Nepal: Agriculture, Tourism and Construction. Dakchyata is a four year project which runs from 2017 to 2021, and is part of the overarching TVET PP programme funded by the European Union, and managed by the British Council in partnership with the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) in Nepal.
The main aim of the project is to strengthen the implementation of more effective policy in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector, responsive to labour market needs. The programme will pilot an integrated Public Private Partnership Approach in three key economic sectors i) agriculture ii) construction, iii) tourism, offering opportunities for promoting the transition to a greener, climate-resilient, low-emission economy.
By the end of 2021, following results are envisaged:
- The quality of TVET provision and implementation scaled-up, ensuring that it is made available through outreach to the most disadvantaged. This result area will be fully implemented by CTEVT, with specific inputs from the British Council.
- Innovative PPP models piloted to enhance the relevance, quality and sustainability of TVET provision in Nepal.
- The capacity and coordination role of the Government of Nepal in the TVET system will be enhanced, with improvements the TVET governance.
Activities under the first result area will be fully implemented by CTEVT. Activities under results 2 and 3 are implemented by the British Council, and include the management of a large scale grant fund, complemented by technical assistance and support activities.
