Vocational Training

The 2018 UNDP National Human Development Report (NHDR) shows that 64 per cent of Pakistan’s population is below 30 years of age, which makes it the youngest population in South Asia.

Yet Pakistan is one of the worst performers in terms of technical and vocational education and training (TVET). It should use an effective development and implementation strategy for TVET to harness its young potential.

There are a number of problems in the country’s TVET. According to the Department of Education, dropout rates at primary and secondary levels are 44pc and 40pc, respectively.

There are only 3,798 TVET institutes in Pakistan. They have a limited capacity as they can accommodate only half a million trainees. The annual increase in youth unemployment is estimated at 1.5 million. TVET institutes have obsolete curricula. The youth prefer general higher education to vocational education.

Specialised and sophisticated skills are required for most jobs these days, but there is a lack of linkage between the industry and TVET institutes. Government departments and private organisations prefer to hire employees with higher education to TVET diploma holders. There is a dearth of government funding for TVET institutes. Women’s participation is very limited. Another major issue is the shortage of good trainers.
