REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL for the assignment of Technical and Vocational Education and Training sector mapping in State 1

HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Nepal is a Swiss organisation actively contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of economically poor and socially discriminated people in Nepal. Enhanced Skills for Sustainable and Rewarding Employment (ENSSURE) is a bilateral initiative of the Government of Nepal (GoN) and the Government of Switzerland. The overall goal of the project is to contribute for improved living standard of Nepalese workers particularly from disadvantaged groups to benefit from continuous employment. The project is implemented by the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) with technical assistance from HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Nepal.

New constitution highlights Nepal as a federalised country with competent and well-prepared human resources developed through “scientific, technical, vocational, empirical, employment and people-oriented” education that should make the labour force “competent and professional”. To translate this statement into action, Nepal has already undertaken the impressive preparatory work for the federalisation of TVET sector.

In this context, ENSSURE aims to conduct study with a focus on the TVET mapping (landscaping) to provide a wider picture of the current situation regarding the demand and supply of TVET including the potentials and the contributions of associated partners/stakeholders in relation to labour market. Therefore, ENSSURE invites proposals from eligible, experienced/competent and interested consulting firms to carry out the above-mentioned assignment. The selection process will be based on Consultants’ Qualification Selection (CQS) method. The short-listed firms will be invited for a presentation on the proposed implementation approach and methodologies. Detail information and proposal documents are available through the lin BELOW
