The Kathmandu University School of Education (KUSOED) is starting master’s study on Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) from the upcoming academic session starting in August 2018.
The programme, which will be the first ever in South Asia, will have adequate openness providing enough opportunity and flexibility to students to show their imagination, innovation, and creativity providing needed practical exposure and emphasis on entrepreneurship, according to KUSOED Dean Mahesh Nath Parajuli.
“Given the competency the students will acquire during the programme, they will be fit for the domestic as well as international labour market,” he added.
The curriculum for the programme is currently being refined in consultation with experts.
A workshop comprising 26 personalities representing various ministries, Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training, private sector and technical education experts was organised on Sunday to discuss on TVE programme.
“We have obtained valuable feedbacks from the participants, both on the structure and the content of the programme, and we will incorporate them as appropriate,” said Parajuli.
