The Technical Support Cooperation to Education Sector in Nepal (TECSES) project supports the development of teacher education (pre and in-service training) at different levels of administration in Nepal. The aim of the technical assistance is to improve Nepal’s inclusive teaching and learning practices in schools, teacher training centers and participating universities and their faculties by developing learner-centered methods, inclusion, student assessment methods, soft skills and reflective practices. The objectives of the TECSES project are fully in line with the Nepal Education Program Development Plan (SESP, 2021-2030). In particular, TECSES supports the SESP targets 1. equal access to education, and 2. quality education and learning outcomes for every child.

The final beneficiaries of the project are Nepalese students. Finland's funding for the project is EUR 5 million for years 2022-2025.
