The TA was commenced from 17 April 2012 and its completion date is on 31 March 2016. The implementation of the TA is progressing well. The TA supported the government in developing teacher management and development strategy, fund flow tracking of expenditures at the school level, and scaling up strategy for disaster resilient schools. These activities enabled the government to fully comply all tranche conditions of ADB's investment program grant School Sector Program. The TA is also helping both ADB and the government to co-lead the quality and teacher management and development and school safety thematic groups under the SSRP. Following the earthquake disaster, the TA resource was quickly mobilized to carry out post disaster needs assessment of education sector, structural assessment of damage school buildings in Kathmandu valley, prioritization of damage schools for reconstruction, and revision of type designs of schools to ensure disaster resilience.

The TA is also helping the government in the preparation of the new sector plan in school education.
