Abstract

Training effectiveness is important for the employment of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) school graduates, such as light vehicle mechanics in the automobile industry. This study explored the training effectiveness of light vehicle mechanics in Nepal, with focus on students’ satisfaction with TVET school’s physical facilities and physical environment. The training effectiveness is explored among the sampled TVET graduates of CTEVT affiliated TVET schools, using quantitative method of research. The overall impression of the training was effective because the graduates responded positively about training. The schools did not fully achieve the objectives due to inadequate provision of modern technology. Thus, they pointed out the need for regular up-to-date tools and equipment as per need of the industry. Utilization of library facility and technology in the teaching- learning methods was equally needed. The skill mismatch could be solved by linking industry to the TVET training. This study may draw an interest of the TVET school leaders for taking effective measures to maintain quality of graduates, keeping in mind the industry needs. Similarly, future researchers may take reference when they want to explore the underlying causes of students’ satisfaction with physical facility and school environment, as well as training and skill mismatch in the labor market among the TVET school graduates.
