Attraction in TVET programs

TEVT programs are more attractive because of the following reasons:


As only the theoretical or general academic education gained through schools and college couldn’t provide enough job opportunities, technical education and vocational training programs for increasing the rate of employment was felt necessary. Various research studies show that more than 70 percent of TEVT graduates in an average are employed (including self employment).


Since TEVT programs also have academic ladder, TEVT graduates also can get higher education opportunities as those of students of general education in their relevant subject


In order to get entrance in the international job markets, it is an effective means which not only opens the door in the labor markets but also creates job opportunities to other people encouraging self employment and entrepreneurship development.


People having technical and vocational skills can easily sell their skills and can get better earning which ultimately makes helps them to uplift their living standard.


Developed countries like USA, UK, Canada, Australia and other European countries have very attractive plans of providing Permanent Residence (PR) and working visa for the people having technical and vocational skills.


The Foreign Employment Surveys (2007) shows that skilled human resource like plumbers, carpenters, shuttering carpenters, civil overseer, and other mechanics have five time better salary / wages than those of people without any skills. For example, a plumber in Arabian countries draws monthly salary of Rs.40, 000 whereas a general labor draws only Rs. 10,000 per month.
