Attitudes of Youth-Trainees towards Technical, Vocational Education and Training in VETA Institutions in Arusha City, Tanzania


This study investigated the attitudes of youth trainees towards technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in VETA institutions in Arusha City in Tanzania. It was guided by two research questions: i) what is the rate of youth enrolment in TVET in VETA institutions in Arusha City? ii) what are the attitudes of the trainees towards the offered courses? The study employed a cross-sectional research design. The sample had 130 trainees, 15 trainers and 3 programme coordinators making 148 total participants. Data collection was done using questionnaires, interview and document analysis guides. Data were analysed statistically and thematically. Results also show that, enrollment is very high based on the institutions’ admission capacities and a majority of trainees has positive attitudes towards the offered TVET courses and perceive them beneficial. The study concludes that, the youth-trainees enrollment rate meets the admission capacity by 100% and the trainees’ attitude towards TVET is positive in the studied VETA institutions. This study recommends for more sensitization and advertisement of TVE to the public for skilling of many youths possible.
