For Every Child, Education
Education for all
Over the next five years, UNICEF will work to ensure that all children, especially the most disadvantaged, benefit from improved access, participation and learning outcomes in inclusive, safe and protective environments.
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT
UNICEF will work to ensure that the youngest children have the chance to develop to their full potential. Early Childhood Education will prepare children for school and work with parents to support their children’s development.
Teaching and learning practices will be strengthened to deliver improved learning outcomes. This will include providing teachers in remote areas with the skills needed for small schools. Better teaching for children who do not have Nepali as their first language will be introduced. Schools will be supported to provide inclusive education to address the needs of children with disabilities and learning difficulties. UNICEF will work with the education system so that each and every school is a Child Friendly School, respecting children’s rights and providing child-centred instruction.
ADOLESCENT LITERACY AND LIFE SKILLS EDUCATION
UNICEF will continue to support the Government to provide a holistic life-skills-based approach to learning that enhances self-protection, employability, and an adolescent’s potential to thrive in their community. For those children that have not been able to enter or return to basic education, UNICEF will support children through alternative learning programmes and support the establishment of an equivalency framework, ensuring these children get recognized qualifications.
