Abstract


The Lack of skills valuable in local and global labor markets has been a root cause of high youth unemployment thus being a constraint to economic growth, employment and income. So, many countries embrace vocational education as a solution to this problem. Since the main aims of vocational education are: preparing the graduates with skills, knowledge, competencies as well as the right attitude for the world of work where graduates can work independently or recruited in the existing job vacancies which can lead to improvement in the national income and productivity of the country making it competitive in the global economy. However, many vocational school graduates have not been fully absorbed by the industries or world of work leading to questions of “why is it like that vis-a-vis TVET objectives of employable skills?” Therefore, this paper analyzes this problem in relation to the linkage between the vocational schools’ cooperation with industries as a solution to improving competence skills, knowledge and attitude of learners required by the industries through matching TVET programs with the industry needs thus bridging competence and quality standard for high performance exploring comparison case studies in developed and developing countries.

Keywords
