Rwanda has joined the call for a deliberate policy to promote vocational education. The country is spearheading a campaign for the youth to embrace technical and vocational training. The argument by government is that the mainstream education system has not guaranteed employment. Even with the increasing number of Universities, those who graduate can neither find employment nor create their own jobs.

TVET systems have turned the developed countries into the world’s most industrialised nations.
