Responsiveness of Technical and Vocational Education to Labour Market Demands - DBA defense
On 3 July 2019 Mr. Godfrey Alto Komba successfully defended his DBA thesis titled The Role of Industries and Responsiveness of Technical and Vocational Education and Training to the Labour Market Demands: The Case of Tanzania at MSM.
The main objective of the research of Mr. Godfrey was to investigate the factors constraining and motivating involvement of the industries in the provision of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Tanzania. The research also explored the extent and modes of current involvement of the industries in TVET education in Tanzania.
Mr. Godfrey’s study revealed that the current level of involvement of industries in the provision of TVET education is very minimal. The study identified eight motivational and nine constraining factors which affect the involvement of industries in the provision of TVET education in Tanzania. Furthermore, the study found that the current level of involvement of industries in TVET education has minimal influence on the relevance of Tanzanian TVET education to the labour market demands.
“Doing my DBA at MSM has enabled me to have a broad mindset and has given me the tools and skills to solve practical problems,” said Mr. Godfrey after his DBA defense. “Translating pressing issues in practice into a scientific research question that is testable was quite challenging. The DBA made me acquire extensive knowledge that will enable me to better tackle real problems at my work.”
