Abstract

Quality assurance in the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is a concept that is concerned with high performance in entire academic process involving the activities, such as teaching, learning, infrastructure, and students’ behavior. Good quality education is imperative in the holistic development of the student, which ensures proper development, job prospects and the realization of academic goals and objectives. There are varied factors working against the realization of quality TVET. In a competitive labor market, the quality and relevancy of program offering must be of paramount interest to all technical and vocational institutions. Accredited institutions, qualified teachers and practical partnerships between public and private actors will have an increasingly important role to play in the delivery of TVET programs so that the fresh graduates from the institutions of TEVT must be world class and the education quality of global standards. Effective quality assurance policy helps to support the development and maintenance of a good TVET system. This paper attempts to clarify the concept of quality assurance in TVET by discussing various approaches employed in it. It presents examples of best practices in quality assurance based on the secondary data, observation, study, and experiences; outlines and discusses the relevancy, gap and need in Nepal’s TEVT system to meet the requirements of competent and competitive human resources for the world of work.
