The World Bank, which advocates changing public roles in TVET from an inefficient service provider to an effective regulator, thus leaving actual provision of skills development services to the private sector, seems more ln in this area than in the last couple of decades.

Together with the domestic factor, this external factor is raising motivation in students for continued study at the higher education, even in countries where the secondary education system is still only moderately developed.

Needless to say, skills acquired are meaningful only when they are applied. The preceding arguments, although strongly influencing the developing countries, gvet the risk of directing skills development SD policies and implementation into being isolated from the demand on the ground or at best ineffective.

Ethiopia: Revisiting Nation’s TVET Strategy Implementation –

Successful East Asian cases suggest that late developers have an advantage of being able to make a technological jump, and that strengthening the domestic capacity to absorb and internalize the advanced technology is the key. This has been largely done by the private sector that has basic technological capacity, entrepreneurship, and human resources.

In most of the less developed countries today, however, the indigenous private sector is prevalent in the informal setting, and that is deemed inadequate as the organizational platform or foundation for rapid SD.

On the other hand, competition for scarce public resources and strong policy advice from aid agencies leave limited scope for expanding or upgrading public SD institutions. The history of nation TVET dates back to At that period of time the position was to produce hands on human power but for various reasons that could not happen.

Had it been implemented Ethiopia would have been one of the leading economies in the world. After learning all setbacks and opportunities ina new strategy had been developed that could address the demands. And in a well articulated strategy with clear stand to implement the strategy was set in motion. TVET impact has been apparent in various sectors. It played quite a role in achieving the development agenda of the nation. Now the nation has beefed up its muscle to run Mega projects by its own, SMEs, across the nation, are creating job opportunities as much as they are producing quality service as well supporting the industrialization journey.

TVET institutions are mainly expected to replicate new and selected technologies and transfer the same to the relevant industry in order to enhance the competitiveness of the sector. It intends to create competent, motivated, employable, adaptable and innovative workforce through which the country’s socio-economic development shall be enhanced.

In the budget year in the public TVETs and private sort of competence had been planned and had been actualized which 93 per cent performance.

All TVETs had received supervision and all are sorted in accordance to their performance. In line with this perspective, much had been done in addressing gaps in supporting the SMEs as well creating favourable ways out to the industrial transformation.


He noted that paying homage to the workshops helps to draw experiences, reiterate commitment and identify directions on how the workshops should be managed effectively as per the strategy. According to Teklu, about 34, trainees are in the TVETs getting training that could change their skills and knowledge and assist the SMEs to flourishe. The workshops are built in the potential areas to benefit the community in the vicinity in short term training and enable them to be involved in the manufacturing sector.

In this regard 55, of them had transformed to enterprises mostly in etgiopia and construction areas. The booming industries are also recruiting skilled human power. The service sector is also the huge absorbing.

We are making sure all trainees pass under assessment. They are giving training to 25, trainees. The challenges observed are the attitude of trainees towards creating own business. Most of have a bent to be hired in governmental organizations. In an exclusive interview with this writer, State Minister Teshome Lemma underlined the lucrative advantage is ahead of us but we should not handle things in business as usual manner.

We need to make everyone aware of it. We could say TVET is instrumental in realizing prosperous Ethiopia if all pertinent bodies come kn the campaign. Not only the leadership should committed to see the unlocking of the available potentials but also families and media must be part of the crusade. We should work on it.

TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training)

Technical and vocational training should be the first choice of the students. It should not be gabbled. All developed nation managed to hit their targets because they were engaged in crafting components as per the demand of the market. And more than 8 hundred thousands should be at TVETs,” he noted.

This is the firm stand of the Strategy ‘The competence of every one must be assessed before joining the world of work, SMEs which have not gone under assessment will be given short training and evaluated. Technical and vocational education and training TVET refers to education and training that prepare persons for gainful employment. In other words, TVET refers to deliberate interventions to bring about learning, which would make people more productive.

TVET has the potential to enhance human capabilities and enlarge peoples’ choices. The benefits of TVET need to be more equitably distributed between men and women, and between rural and urban areas.

To this end, the government is committed to construct more than new TVETs in the coming five years. This new year 56 will be constructed. Increased reliance is being placed on technical and vocational education and training TVET to raise educational attainment levels and to improve the labour market and career outcomes of citizens.

The formulation and launch of a national TVET policy testifies the government commitment and the gravity our development partners attach to bridging the widening unemployment gap and aligning technical and vocational skills training with formal education, thereby producing a competent, qualified workforce for the nation. The Strategy efhiopia lucrative in supporting all sector of economy.

The regular trainees had beenand of these 82, had gone through the competence evaluation centres across the nation, 49, trainees had joined the SMEs and engaged in public and private institutions.


Even if the Strategy is the most typical instrument in building the nation and delivering hands on training for the coming generation that could make ready to join the world of work, there are bottlenecks that all stakeholders should address.

Technical and vocational training should be the vtet choice of the students, in this regard we should do all work to bridge the gap.

No one should be gabbling to join TVET. Aligning with development corridors preparing competencies with regard to market driven training as well facilities and assessment process should be addressed.

Histogy number of trainees is not the amount it should be, we should work on it.
