[:en]’CDN’s Information Sharing Meeting with NVQS[:]


Representatives from Career Disha Nepal and the capacity development specialist, Ms Prativa Joshi from National Vocational Qualification System (NVQS) had a small information sharing meeting on the Friday 27th October 2017.

NVQS is working towards creating a more streamlined education system where the gap between vocational training and formal academics is bridged. The talk was mainly focused on the development and the structure of the current educational system as well as its future. Through the meet, we found out that NVQS working with National Skill Testing Board (NSTB) and Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) are planning a draft of that system which is to be completed by 2019, according to Ms Prativa Joshi.

The idea is to create an identical field where youth who have completed the vocational training and formal academics have similar career opportunities. This, according to Ms Joshi, could start off by providing certification to youths/students that have successfully completed their vocational training. One of the concepts that we should all be excited is that NVQS too plans to expand the vocation training to an equivalent rate to a PhD graduate. The details, however, are still under construction.

You can find the drafted version of the planned structure through a video that NVQS recently published here.


[:en]Catching up … Annual report of 2014 – 2016 online now![:]


We believe that transparency is the essential part of a social business, so we established this summer the process of having an annual report. As it is the first report since we were established, this time we would like to share the journey from CDN in the last 3 years. We hope that this report will open the curtain and show you CDN’s development step by step.

You can find our three years progress report is on the CDN website now, http://www.careerdishanepal.org/annual-reports/ . This report will give insight of CDN, and answers these frequently asked questions, How was CDN initiated?… What is CDN’s journey from past to present? … What CDN has done outside to career counseling? … Who are the beneficiaries of CDN services? … How many people have been benefited already? … What is the financial situation of CDN? … With whom does CDN collaborate to reach its goals? … You will know overall information about CDN from this report. This report is ready to download from this link http://www.careerdishanepal.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/FINAL-Annual_Report-2016.pdf

From 2018 onwards we plan to have a annual report published in spring every year for the past month. We are looking forward to your suggestions on how to improve the report.

Job and Labour Market

This delves in informing people about the structural hierarchy, the limited information about the labour market of Nepal.

What do I know, and what more do I need to know about Nepal’s labour market

The information available at the moment in the ministry of information and statistic bureau is not enough to make any concrete hypothesis, conclusion as well as produce any convincing statements about the future trend of the labour market in Nepal. However, there are few facts that have been staple news for the last half century, which need not be repeated. Facts like – the percentage of Nepali directly and indirectly involved in agriculture- 75% or so, the rising movement of Nepali workforce to Middle East for jobs- currently around 1500 people per day.

Though Nepal is still in the first stage of economic growth, primary sector (farming and agriculture) is still dominant in the nation. Normally, for sustaining growth the nation usually moves from primary to manufacturing and then to service sector. Nepal skipped the manufacturing sector and is moving rapidly into service. Information about the areas where the newest members of our work-force might want to work next is still under construction. The last 10 years, exponential growth was seen in infrastructure, esp. in hydro electricity, at the same time according to few experts, if managed, Nepal can be one of the most attractive places for travellers. Sadly, the movement to the Middle East has become a sensation mostly due to lack of information about the availability of domestic resources.

A huge number of youth are choosing urban areas to rural areas for both for opportunity (education, jobs etc.) as well as for permanent residence. It can be thus prematurely concluded that the increasing number of youth do not wish to recognize what is needed for the growth of their villages (villages make up over 70% of Nepal), and thus choose their education which are saturated and usually over supplied.

Educational System of Nepal

The main area this section deals with is the structure of the educational system and its reach to the different area of Nepal.

Educational System

Nepal’s educational and learning sector can be roughly broken into five sections: Training, Diploma, TECS, Technical SLC and Academics. Though majority of students and teachers choose academics over the other 4 sections, they are well developed and have specific as well as a significant role in creating employment.


  • Depending upon the level, this area can be accessed by people with basic literacy.
  • Some short-term courses have a duration of less than 150 hours (3 hours a day for a month)
  • Training can help you develop quick and specific skill, which are usually highly sought after.
  • The same area can have a different level of training. (Electrician course can have training starting from 390 hours and can go up to 3 years)

  • Technical Secondary Education usually has chosen by those who have a certain leaning already set up. Like those who want to study Agriculture or Engineer or Health etc.
  • TECS has five specialized course, each of which has the duration of 4-5 years.
  • TECS help grow and specialize in the area of your interest from 8th
  • Similar examination as SLC is taken for TECS students named TECS, with the two extra technical subjects that were the specialization.

Post- TSLC

  • Post-TSLC training is accessible to everybody who appeared for SLC.
  • Courses are offered by the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) and have the duration of 18 months each.
  • Post-TSLC takes 1 year 3 months to 2 years 5 months to complete depending on respective subjects. Like those who want to study specific subjects area, engineer, health, agriculture, hospitality etc.


  • This education type is after the completion of SLC, has more choices than that of TSLC and is more of a professional education than academic.
  • Targeted towards the students that have a certain career in their mind.
  • One can join Bachelors after the completion of Diploma or even get in the labour market.

श्रम बजार

नेपालमा रहेको पेशा र श्रम बजार संरचनाको अध्ययन आधारमा यो लेखले श्रम बजारको सिमित जानकारी प्रदान गर्दछ |

नेपालको श्रम बजारको बारेमा मलाई के जानकारी छ र थप कुन जानकारी लिनु आवश्यक छ :

नेपाल सूचना तथा तथ्यांक विभागले नेपालको पेशा तथा श्रम बजारको बारेमा प्रयाप्त जानकारी प्रदान नगरेकाले श्रम बजारको तथ्यांक, वर्तमान अवस्था, भविष्यमा हुन सक्ने सम्भावनाको बारेमा उल्लेख गर्न सकिदैन |  तर पनि केहि तथ्यहरु शताब्दी देखि निरन्तर रुपमा सुनिदै आएको छन् | उदाहरणको रुपमा नेपालको जनसांखिकी हिसाबले ७५% भन्दा बढी जनसंख्या प्रत्यक्ष वा अप्रत्यक्ष रुपमा कृषि क्षेत्रमा संग्लग्न रहदै आएका छन् त्यस्तैगरेर दैनिकी रुपमा  लगभग १५०० जना  नेपाली श्रमिकहरु अरवी मुलकमा पलायन भइरहेका छन् |  नेपालको प्रमुख आम्दानीको श्रोत भनेको खेतीपाती तथा कृषि क्षेत्रनै हो, तर नेपालको आर्थिक वृद्धिदरलाई हेर्ने हो भने पहिलो चरणमानै रहेको छ | सामान्यतया, देशमा आर्थिक वृद्धि हुनको लागि प्राथमिक, औद्योगिक र सेवा क्षेत्र क्रमबद्ध रुपमा पार गर्नु पर्ने हुन्छ तर नेपालको सन्दर्भमा भने औद्योगिक क्षेत्रलाई फड्को मारी सेवा क्षेत्र तर्फ लागिरहेको अवस्था छ | नेपालको श्रम बजारमा उत्रिएका नव युवाहरुले गर्न चाहेको पेशाहरु भने अझै पनि प्रयाप्त छैनन् | अन्तिम दशकदेखिको नेपालको विकास क्रमलाई हेर्ने हो भने हाइड्रो इलेक्ट्रीसिटीमा भएको तिब्र विकासलाई हेर्न सकिन्छ | केहि दक्ष तथा अनुभवी व्यक्तिहरुका आनुसार यदि विकासका पूर्वाधारहरुको उचित व्यवस्थापन गर्न सकियो भने नेपाल पर्यटकहरुको लागि आकर्षक विन्दु बन्न सक्दछ | नेपालमा उपलब्ध राष्ट्रिय श्रोतको बारेमा पूर्ण जानकारी, कसरि सदुपयोग गर्ने भनि थाहा नहुदा नेपाली युवाहरुको मध्य पुर्व भूभाग तर्फको वैदेशिक यात्रा निरन्तर बढ्दो छ |

नेपालको अधिकांश (७०% भन्दा बढी) भुभाग ग्रामिण क्षेत्रले ओगटेको छ | तर ठुलो संख्यामा नेपाली युवाहरु अवसरहरुको खोजीको साथसाथै स्थाई बसोबासको लागि ग्रामीण भूभागबाट सहरी भूभाग तर्फको बसाइँसराई बढ्दो क्रममा रहेको छ | वर्तमान अवस्थालाई मध्यनजर गर्दा युवाहरुमा ग्रामीण क्षेत्रको विकासगर्ने शैक्षिक रोजाई भन्दा पनि श्रम बजारमा पहिलानै प्रचललित केहि करियर छनोट गरेको पाइन्छ |
