Abstract:

Low quality workforce is a fundamental problem of overall national development in the least developed countries (LDCs), and the persistence of huge gender disparities in education (GDE) is the major limitation to achieve the goal of the national development. In this context, the paper, ‘Impacts of Gender Disparity in General Education on Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Asia: A Case of Nepal’ explores relevant literature on the topic, trends of GDE and VET in the context of LDCs in Asia and the link between GDE and VET in Nepal, as a case study. In general, the LDCs in Asia and even the districts in Nepal with higher level of GDE have lower level of trained human resource and vice versa. Furthermore, empirical analysis of recent raw data of Nepal Labor Force Survey (NLFS) conducted in 2008 evident that the GDE is strongly correlated with the VET with negative sign, indicating that reducing GDE would have significant impact on rapid improvement on VET. Therefore, the paper recommends that GDE should be reduced not only for achieving educational equality but also for quality human resource development. VET contributes to create employment and reduce inequality as it serves best for disadvantage and rural youth and women, which would consequently lead to overall development of Nepal and other LDCs. Further analysis is proposed by extending such analysis on other aspects of employment and development.
