II.    Title of your plan:
       Skills Development Programme for Person with disabilities.


III.       Summary:

The concept paper is to provide information on the need to establish formal relationship
and understanding between the Department of Human Resources, Ministry of Labour and
Human Resources, Department of Education, Ministry of Health and Education and
Bhutan chamber of commercial Industry (NGO/BCCI) for collaboration in providing
vocational skills training and employment to the Person with disabilities and school leavers.
The main purpose of this collaboration is to jointly work for a common goal of enhancing
socio economy of the nation and to meet the ever-changing needs of the people at the
community level for improvement of their quality of life.
The Royal government of Bhutan is greatly concerned about providing access to quality
education for disabled children within Bhutan. Currently the only provisions for education of
disabled children is at the two rehabilitation schools in the Kingdom which provides
education for approximately 90 pupils including visual impairment, physical and intellectual
disabilities. I believe the majority of disabled children are still in the rural areas. With the
educational needs of the disabled already enrolled in schools being addressed by the
Department of Education, the needs of out of school disabled youth and children need to
be met through community based rehabilitation activities. The Drak-Tsho vocational
Training centre for disabled is one such facility established in Thimphu community. The
main purpose is to focus to equip them with Vocational skills to enhance their opportunities
for gainful employment. It also aims to build their self-esteem and self-reliance thereby,
making them independent, confident and contributing members of the society. Not only
that but more importantly to develop in them a positive attitude towards life and living. In
fact the greatest challenge for the Department is to erase the deeply embedded stigma of
being less fortunate and useless member of the family and the society at large. Create
independency and self-employment in the open labour market by giving them the following
Vocational skill training.
        • Packaging
        • Tailoring
        • Handicrafts
        • Laundry
        • Traditional art and painting
        • Singing and using musical instruments
        • Making souvenir items
        • Word processing and use of computer
        • Recreational sports
We have divided the training skills in to two phases with the total budget of USD 43,300.00
(forty three thousand three hundred US dollars only). The training duration ranges from 4
months to 1 years and team comprises of two or three members from each department will
monitor and submit the progress report to the Ministry. In the long term if this pilot project
is succeedfull then we will recruit more and recreate more vocational skills.

IV.          Brief Introduction of my Organization


An increasing choice of vocational education and training program will be made available, so
that every school leavers and PWDs, keen to create or improve their occupational
competence and employability will find an opportunities that fits to their abilities, personal
living conditions and preferences. In-line with the vocational education and training policy. The
Department of Human Resources, under the Ministry of Labour and Human resources is
providing need-based vocational skills to the people with disabilities and non-disabilities. The
special skill development program is one of the main programs under department of Human
Resources, entrusted to look after the disabled people in the country. This programme was
established in 1997 to develop the Vocational Skills of unprivileged and disadvantaged group
of peoples like Juvenile Delinquents, Disabled people. Etc.

The Department of Human Resources (DHR) was an autonomous agency of the Royal
Government of Bhutan that was responsible for overseeing all aspects of technical and
vocational education and training (TVET) in the country. It was established in May 1999
with the mandate to develop and implement a national TVET system that matches the
supply and demand of skilled workers in numbers, quality and expectations.

The DHR board, with members from major stake holders, was the executive body of the
authority while the DHR secretariat was the implementing agency. The secretariat was
responsible for implementing the directives of the authority, and for coordinating the
development and implementation of a national TVET system. All staff of the secretariat,
including the head of the secretariat, is appointed by the Royal Civil Service Commission
(RCSC). The DHR has also formed numerous committees drawing in members from
relevant organizations, both government and private, that facilitate the DHR in performing
its functions.

Since the development and implementation of a national TVET system, to produce a
skilled, productive and professional workforce in the country, lie at the heart of the DHR, all
our activities are centered around the broad objective. Specifically, we are involved in the
following:

      1. Planning, developing and coordinating the implementation of a national system for
         TVET;
      2. Formulating policy, planning, coordinating and enabling TVET at all levels;
      3. Registering, authorizing and coordinating all TVET programmes of institutes,
         agencies and all other training providers;
      4. Setting and ensuring minimum academic and training standards in institutes,
         agencies and all other training providers;
      5. Promoting and supporting TVET programmes in the general education system;
      6. Developing a national system for skills standards, testing and certification of skilled
         workers; and developing partnerships between and among industry and TVET
         providers.

V.           Needs/Problems:

The Royal government of Bhutan is greatly concerned to provide access to quality
education for disabled children within Bhutan. Currently the only provisions for education of
disabled children are two rehabilitation schools in the Kingdom. I believe the majority of
disabled children are still in the rural areas.
The concept paper is to provide information on the need to establish formal relationship
and understanding between the Department of Human Resources, Ministry of Labour and
Human Resources and the Department of Education, Ministry of Health and Education for
collaboration in providing vocational skill training to the Person with disabilities. The main
purpose of this collaboration is to jointly work for a common goal of enhancing socio
economy of the nation and to meet the ever-changing needs of the people at the
community level for improvement of their quality of life.

VI.          Goals:
      •   We will be a vibrant institution that contributes to achieving the goals of Bhutan
          2020 by enabling a world class TVET system.
      •   To provide relevant marketable vocational skills that would improve the income of
          the rural communities and self employment opportunity.
      •   To increase the quality of life in the communities;
      •   Enhancing community participation in education and development activities.
      •   To develop a skilled and productive Workforce for Bhutan.



VII.      Target objectives:
       The Royal Government accepts and recognizes that disabilities does not mean
      disability and is committed to encouraging and promoting the full participation of
      disabled persons in all aspects of life, including open, productive and decent
      employment.
      The following objectives and targets are proposed for the employment of disabled
      persons during the 9th plan.

          By June 2007, 100 disabled persons will be employed in open- employment in
          Government, corporate and private sectors.
          By June, 2007, 50 disabled persons will be engaged in self employment activities.
          By June, 2007, all employers, both public and private will be more aware of
          disability issues and more will to employ disabled persons.
          To create awareness and promote vocational skills to both non disabled and
          disability persons.
          To provide self-confidence and ability through appropriate vocational training in
          order to encourage income-generating activities in the community
          To facilitate them with various vocational skills to initiate income generation
          activities or self-employment.



                                                5
      To create awareness of the importance of income-generation concept and
      recognize as a priority program of the Royal Government.
      Every Bhutanese will have access to quality, Vocational Education Training,
      enabling     them to embark on and remain in gainful economic activity.
      To support disabled children and youth in preparing them to lead independent,
      confident and happy lives by providing them with vocational training opportunities.

 VIII. Procedures/ Scope of work:
To achieve the objective, non-formal Instructors will be trained in various vocational skill
areas depending on the specific needs of the community. After the training program, NFE
Instructors are expected to train and motivate the local communities to generate rural
employment, income-generation, self-employment or small-scale business enterprise. The
Specific strategies are as follows:


      •   The training programmes will be conducted at the local Vocational Training
          Institutes, or Community Learning Centres, making use of the existing building,
          equipment and other facilities.

      •   The training will be provided in three modules (I) Basic Training (II) Advanced
          Training. (III) Entrepreneurship Training.

      •   Participants will be assessed in all the modules based on the continuous
          assessment system.

      •   Participants will be awarded certificate based on the proficiency demonstrated
          on the performance test at the end of the training.

      •   Close linkage with vocational training institutes will be established to create
          awareness of improved appropriate technology in the communities and mobilise
          them to adopt it. This will also strengthen the Department of Human Resources
          efforts to disseminate skills training programme to the rural communities.

XVI.A Sources of Financial Budget:
              •   50% from the Royal Government of Bhutan if possible
              •   50% from the donor agencies


XVII. Monitoring and Evaluation Aspects:
  The Department of Human Resources, Department of Education, and the concerned
  Dzongkhag will monitor and evaluate activities continuously as well as at the end of
  each program for remedial correction, enrichment and expansion. Relevancy of the
  programme, objectives, training content and learning strategies of each area and
  applicability of the skills acquired must be tested. Trainers will prepare the progress
  report and submit to DHR/DoE on monthly basis or after completion of each module.
  Trainers should maintain daily work activities of the trainees and their progress.

  A. Follow up action:

        After the skills training program, PWDs has to register themselves to the
        Department of Employment and BCCI for the employment. Thus, this will serve as a
        network in reaching the skills to every interested people in remote areas. The
        Instructors should be able to provide all necessary post-training support and
        services required by the community, in-terms of setting up cooperatives, small
        business, and other income-generating activities.
