The core business of TVET Colleges is to prepare students for skilled employment, as it directly benefits the students (who get access to decent jobs), the colleges (by placing more graduates) and the economy (through the resulting supply of competent workers). Adequate preparation for such employment means the students must acquire specific technical and vocational knowledge and skills, and authentic workplace experience that imparts an understanding of how those skills are practiced in industry and how the industry functions. Students must also acquire the social and communication skills required by the world of work.
