The project’s overall aim was to support skills development in 26 countries including Nepal. The project worked through the themes of skills, enterprise and English to support the development of education strategies that ensured that young people are better prepared for the world of work by supporting and strengthening national reforms agendas in technical and vocational education and training. Through the themes of skills and enterprise we fostered international collaboration and support social and economic development, by encouraging closer links between education, employers and policy makers in the UK and worldwide.


The project improved knowledge and understanding of effective approaches to skills development and raised the profile of vocational and technical education and skills through: 

•  College partnerships

•  Policy Dialogue
