The Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) has presented a proposal to the Ministry of Education for the construction of a Multi-Technical school in all the seven states. According to the announcement made by the Prime Minister, K.P. Oli, on the first cabinet meeting, the reach of technical education would be widened through CTEVT.
Member secretary for CTEVT, Pusparaman Wagle, said that the service of the CTEVT is going to be widened according to the federal structure. The local levels could also conduct educational programs with the coordination of CTEVT from the technical school which is going to be established at the state level. ‘The structure has been prepared so as to transfer all the works which are being done from the centre to the state offices. Educational institutes will now run under the state offices,’ he said, ‘Technical Schools can also be opened at the local level considering the population, geography and need.’ Detailed information can be found in the structural proposal of CTEVT.
According to CTEVT, the regional office of Kohalpur, Bharatpur, and Itahari are currently going to be changed to State offices. After changing those 3 regional offices to state-level offices, the plan has been made to open offices in the rest of the 4 provinces as well. ‘The offices which are in operation will now be upgraded to province level,’ he said, ‘Where there are no offices, construction will be done and offices will be established.’ According to the announcement made by the Prime Minister, within 2 years technical education will reach to state and local levels. The council has even formulated procedures to establish the Women Multi-Technical School in all the 6 metropolitans of Nepal.
‘The conception has been made so as to do all the work regarding normal training, skill testing and examining of instructors from the local level itself,’ said member secretary Wagle. CTEVT has informed that currently, only small and agile infrastructures would be present in the central office located in Sanothimi, Bhaktapur. He said, ‘Now for regular training and for skill testing one does not have to go to Kathmandu. We will be providing many facilities to the local levels.’ The model institute will be constructed in such a way that 5 to 10 thousand students can study there. After the proposal will be accepted the work will be finalized.
CTEVT, which was established on 2045 B.S. is operating with its own laws. A useful and short time period of training for agriculture, engineering, and health are also conducted. To produce lower and medium scaled manpower, there are 40 types of subject curriculum in Diploma level and 25 types in the TLC level.
