    エチオピアの職業教育・訓練(TVET)機関に置けつ実務訓練プログラム―工場で学生はなにを学ぶか―

    English Abstract
    TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) students need to possess the necessary knowledge and skills required by the labor market. To maintain such knowledge and skills, the Ethiopian government has implemented the cooperative training program. However, many researchers have questioned the effect of the program. They point out the weak linkage between the TVET institute and the factory hinders the students from learning. To find out the current situation and issues of the program, the author conducted interviews with the stakeholders and field observation at the factory. The author found there was no common understanding of the program between the TVET institute and the factory. The TVET institute expects the factory to train practical skills, while the factory considers the students as cheap labor. This mismatch makes the students difficult to learn at the factory. The author also found that non-cognitive skills, especially communication skill and punctuality, are essential for the students to learn at the factory. Since the factory has a limited number of machines, only a few students who came early can use them. Also, workers at the factory are too busy to take care of TVET students, so the students must communicate with the workers well to find out somehow what they want to know. This situation gives some of the students who are not aggressive/sociable tough times at the factory.

    Ethiopia Interim Report Bridging the Supply-Demand Gaps of the Industrial Workforce: Findings from a Skills Assessment of Garment Workers in Ethiopia

    In this paper, to measure the perception gaps between the supply and demand side of worker skills, an assessment in which assessors from the employer side and the TVET trainer side concurrently graded the garment manufacturing vocational skills of the same workers was conducted. The findings show that there are several layers of mismatch not only between TVET and employers but also between TVET trainers and students. The report also points out that noncognitive or “soft” skills are as important as production skills and it was revealed that TVET graduates demonstrate higher levels of noncognitive skills than do workers trained only in the factories.

    Explaining differing perceptions of employees’ skill needs: the case of garment workers in Ethiopia

    The Ethiopian economy has grown significantly and the government has prioritized industrial skills development and expanded technical and vocational education and training (TVET). However, mismatches between the skills availableand the skills required are widespread and the unemployment rate for TVET graduates is high. This paper empirically identify the exact types and domains of skills in which the supply–demand mismatches happen in Ethiopia. It also introduces a unique instrument that captures the knowledge and skills of workers in real work environments.
