About ELMS

As private sector employers are not finding the right skilled labours, there is a gap between employer demand and supply of skilled labour / human resources capable of being employed in the country. In this context, establishing an Employer led Labour Market Secretariat (ELMS) project has been commenced to intervene within the gap between the demand of skilled labour by private employer organizations and the supply of skilled trained labour/ human resources in the country.
ELMS project is jointly implemented by five employer associations for the first time ever in the history of Nepal. This project is funded by European Union, managed by British Council and supported by Dakchyata TVET Practical Partnership.

Formulate National Standard Classification of Occupation in Nepal (NSCO) in Nepal.

Develop labour market information system in Nepal.
