From refining relevance of education, to meeting skill demand in the country and beyond, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is undoubtedly the future of Bhutan and its youth. Acknowledging that it is the solution to many challenges we are confronted with today, the reform of TVET system is one of the main priorities of the government.
After series of consultations and events, a team officially took over in March, 2020 to work towards formation of an autonomous TVET agency. The team will report to the Prime Minister’s Office during the transition, until it takes off as an independent organisation. Government pursued TVET reforms since last year. Two expert groups worked on the new curriculum for skills and competency relevant to 21st century, and the governance structure of the revised system.
