The imported models of technical and vocational education, which were developed in a context of economic growth, proved incapable of supplying skilled labour that met the highly varied requirements of Eritrean production systems. The TVET policies followed by the independent Eritrea are aimed at providing the managers and skilled labour, which Eritrea need to support the growth of the modern economy. The government of Eritrea has realized the shortcomings of education and decided to make Rapid transformation of the Education System and thus issued a concept paper in 2003 as part of its educational reforms in the country. TVET system in Eritrea is however facing some challenges to prepare a sufficient number of people with the right skills to meet labour market demands. In this context, an attempt is made in this paper to bring out the development trends in Eritrean TVET and the reconstruction of TVET system.
