Apprenticeship

Mechanical Engineering (24 Months Apprenticeship Programme):

Introduction:

Nepal Government, Ministry of Education implemented the Letter grading system in SLC level. The door of TSLC program is open for those who have appeared 10th grade exam and achieved any GPA and any grade in any subject. Focusing on such students the curriculum of TSLC (Apprenticeship Programme) of 29 months has been converted into TSLC (Apprenticeship Programme) 24 months.

The world is using many mechanical appliances and equipment. Nepal is lacking to produce basic level mechanical workforce in the country, especially in the grass root level of rural and urban communities. Training of TSLC in Mechanical Engineering (Apprenticeship Programme) in mechanical sector, has presently become one of the major responsibilities of CTEVT. In this context, a well-developed curriculum is a fundamental pre-requisite for the training program.

The trained human resources of TSLC in Mechanical Engineering are employed in the world of work in national and international organizations and industries as a basic level mechanical workforce and some of them work as entrepreneurs by establishing their own mechanical workshop.
