Enhanced Skills for Sustainable and Rewarding Employment (ENSSURE) project is a bilateral project of the Government of Nepal (GoN) and the Government of Switzerland. The first phase of the project, which started on 20 January 2016 is concluding on 15 July 2022. The second phase of the project is concurrently being implemented from 10 September 2021 and it will be implemented till 15 July 2025. The main goal of the first phase is to support Nepali workers to benefit from continuous employment and an improved standard of living, whereas the second phase of the project aims to support Nepalese youths, women, and men, to gain social and economic benefits from a federalised TVET system.


The ENSSURE project is implemented by CTEVT at the federal level; Province no. 1, Bagmati Province, and Lumbini province, and 33 Local Governments within those provinces. Helvetas Nepal provides Technical Assistance to all three tiers of the government and assures the quality of the programme.


ENSSURE will contribute to Nepal’s ongoing TVET sector federalisation process. It will support the Provincial and Local Governments in the implementation of Dual-VET apprenticeships and training with on-the-job training, to better respond to employers' requirements and workers’ aspirations. The procurement and implementation of Dual-VET apprenticeships and training with OJT will be done through Province and Local government respectively with technical support from Helvetasl Nepal. The project aims to institutionalise these TVET services so that Provincial and Local Governments can deliver on their TVET responsibilities systematically and sustainably beyond the project´s lifespan.
