With a focus on post-basic education and technical & vocational education and training (TVET) to promote human capital development, ADB through Himachal Pradesh Skill Development Project (HPSDP) is assisting Government of Himachal Pradesh (GoHP) in providing relevant and quality TVET opportunities for its youth, to prepare them for the changing needs of the labour market. Specifically, HPSDP will assist GoHP’s Himachal Pradesh Kaushal Vikas Nigam (HPKVN) in reforming and modernising its TVET institutions and programmes to improve the employment prospects of Himachal Pradesh’s youth. This will help the youth of the state to learn relevant TVET skills and gain the confidence required to make the transition from the primary sector to the secondary and tertiary sectors, where the job prospects are better and remuneration levels are higher.
As a Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) firm, we are supporting HPKVN in developing an M&E framework and action plan to track the different TVET interventions. This includes bringing in a transformational approach to strengthen coordination and capacity building of stakeholders (HPKVN, implementation agencies, and line departments) for better programme delivery and conducting robust baseline, skill-gap and labour market analyses and tracer studies.
