By 2020 Bangladesh will have a much greater diversity of provision and targets of skill training. The Impact of TVET on poverty alleviation will have been increased though greatly expanded public financing of TVET for disadvantaged groups, much of it for income generation in the informal sector. Major reforms will also have been achieved in the delivery of TVET. For the most part, publicity financed TVET will be delivered though cost sharing arrangements with non-governmental institutions and employers. Local management will have replaced central management of the remaining publicity delivered TVET though decentralized authority to managers of public training institutions. Instead of providing training the central government will concentrate on the functions and activities not only easily done by non government providers, namely development of information systems, policies standards, curricula teaching materials and instructors training. Non public resources world be mobilized though partial cost recovery form beneficiaries and by establishment of financial partnerships with enterpriser.

And technical education is a popular media now-a-days.

Evolution of the Systems of TVET

The Technical education Board (TEB) is small, self supporting and a relatively effective organization for developing curricula and trade tests.

Good models exit for skill training by non-government institutions including both UCEP and a similar but cheaper model, suravi.

TTCs and VTIs have become more flexible in their no – regular programs be offering short terms training programs on a cost recovery basis in the afternoon and evenings to those who have completed their formal schooling.

Several comparatively good quality public training institutions exits including some of the TTCs under the ministry of Labor and manpower, the surveyor’s training institute under the ministry of education and some of the rural training caters of the ministry of Youth.

Plans and policies taken by Govt.

In view of the fact that the technological base in too weak at present to produce sufficient technically trained manpower, first, second, third, fourth, and fifth plan calls for expansion of capacity and diversifying of course offerings in line with emerging technologies. The main objectives of these plans are –
• To increase the present enrollment capacity of technical and vocational institutions form 3.3 percent of the student population at the secondary level to around 20 percent by the year 2020.
• to diversity technical and vocational education to meet man power needs in areas of emerging instrumentation.

Impotents problems in TVET

Lack of linkages to the Job market

The main problem with formal and non formal TVET is lack of linkages to employees and the job market. Employers complain that training programs do not produce the skills very require. No incentives are given to mangers or instructors to consult with employers. More over, the rigid, centralized training limits the possibilities of capitalizing on local responsibilities and initiatives.

Lack of Impact on poverty reduction :

The second issue is lack of diversification in training clientele TVET is almost exclusively geared to in school male youth in grades 9-10 as part of SSC Vocational Underprivileged youth outside the school systems, especially girls, do not have access though the TVET system for the skills they need to help them raise incomes in the informal sector.

Ineffectiveness of training support and delivery

In contrast with relatively weak performance of govt. financed and operated institution the non-govtal sector has demonstrated albeit on a very small scale- The capacity to develop local needs based curriculum customized to the experiences of trainees and has achieved strong employment rates for graduates.

Under financing

TVET is expensive but costs the beneficiaries students and enterprises virtually and subsidizing their accommodations. At the same time equipment and consumable supplies are chronically underfinanced in most public institutions. The training establishment 100ks to the central government to solve this problem, but the government lacks the funds. External financing is seen by some as an alternative, but a one-shot injection would not sustainable.

Hindrance of Technical educations in secondary level.

 Teaching style is not scientific or not dynamic form which student can easily learn.
 It has not a statutory body and has not so much smooth plans.
 Vocational educational Boards are not available in our country.
 In secondary level vocational learners have to finish about four semesters during tow years only. Which is not acceptable and students have to make straggle.
 Lack of quality trained teachers.
 Lack of technical teachers training institution.
 Lack of proper teaching.
 Lack of equipment, books and supplies for students.
 Lack of professional skills of teachers.
 Weak community involvement and lack of awareness and interest of parents.
 Shortage of teachers and teacher absenteeism
 Shortage of classroom and over crowding.


A study on technical education in secondary level is a nice title and a burning question of the day. If any country wants to develop they must have to take necessary steps like European, Australian and Asian developed countries. For this matter govt. should take necessary steps should be taken. If we feel it and them job market as a hole our national economy will be increased. Mention following recommendations as like as

• The capacity of the board should be expanded to include a broader range of quality control activates in school accreditation examinations, certification, research and curriculum development, but should not expand beyond its well defined scope of services.

• Decentralize some authority to local schools that have the willingness and capacity to demonstrate more creative and effective approaches to VTE service to delivery.

• Require each VYE school to have an active industry advisory committee.

• Establish a task force to investigate options for improved employment opportunities in VTE.

• Provide financial support and incentives for expansion of NFTVE on and experimental basis.

• Invest in intrastrucre to provide girls and women with increased access to reformed VTE, including a model training institution.

• Government should institute measures to ensure and finance high levels of maintenance and security.

• Consolidate institutions into ones of larger size to concentrate resources and achieve economies of scale.

• Establish a high-level national advisory committee

• Establish recognition and accreditation procedures for private training institutions.
• Establish sheltered workshops or business in curators
• Add mobile training for rural areas

• Lower entry requirements in selected trades, shorten training programs

• Introduce sheltered workshop schemes


Form the analyzing of the term paper may recommend that secondary technical education is very much necessary. But technical education is very much needed all the sector of our countries educational system. Otherwise learners may be drop out form the institution. For the betterment to develop our technical educational system yearly plan and settle more institution, training institutions, technical support, financial equip mental help master plan.
