The Role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the development of technical and vocational education and training (TVET).

Obadara, Olabanji; Adenaide, F. Abisoye

Abstract:
Technical and Vocational Education is a means of empowering individuals to take control of their lives. It is an avenue for preserving and promoting indigenous knowledge and skills, particularly in relation to traditional arts and crafts. Yet, the quality of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) must be relevant to the needs of the labour market. This is because technical and vocational education and training is concerned with the preparation of learners for employment, through the provision of knowledge, skills, and attitudes desirable in the world of work. The challenges of technical and vocational training are to support economic development, create national wealth, and contribute to poverty eradication. In order to achieve this however, the TVET system must be labour- market relevant, equitable, efficient, and of high quality. This paper therefore reveals the challenges of globalization for TVET which call for inclusion of ICT applications use and training in the technical and vocational education and training curriculum.
