Subas P. Dhakal, Verma Prikshat, John Burgess, Alan Nankervis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The country cases contained in this book clearly indicate that although the HE and VET sectors have expanded across the region, the quality of education and industry relevance of skills acquired remain a GWR policy priority for all countries. Many of the countries have begun to tackle the challenges with varying degrees of success. Some innovative approaches have been implemented in some countries, and others are yet to be developed, but clearly more is yet to be done by governments, employers, vocational and higher educational systems, individually and collaboratively to strategically resolve these work-readiness challenges.
