The reality has proven otherwise as TVET is the key that transform the economic development of any nation, alleviate poverty and improve quality of life. Therefore, the orientations have to change, and its time for parents and guardians to encourage the children to learn skills and the government to mobilize resources and pay attention to vocational education as a sure way for family sustainability through personal creativity and innovations on the profession.
