About Us

Non Formal and Continuing Education Division (NFCED) under the Department of Adult and Higher Education (DAHE) has brought in phenomenal success by proving functional literacy program to those sections of population aged 15 and above who have missed formal schooling due to varied reasons. The program after having been taken over by the Ministry of Education in 1993 from the Dzongkha Development Commission had benefitted almost 190, 000 adult illiterate learners and 11, 000 continuing education learners.

Over a decade there has been significant growth and diversification of the program with the introduction of Post Literacy Course (PLC), Community Learning Centre (CLC), Continuing Education (CE) and functional English course. However, with the society becoming more knowledge-based, there is an urgent need to strengthen the programmes to effectively cater and address the learning needs and skills development of those who have missed the formal education system.
