Abstract

The world is facing a worsening youth employment crisis. In response, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is back on the development agenda after
years of neglect. This systematic review examined the evidence from studies evaluating the impacts of TVET interventions for young people in low- and middleincome
countries (LMICs). The 26 included studies evaluated 20 different interventions, predominantly from Latin America. Meta-analyses of the effectiveness of TVET
on five outcome measure categories were conducted. The overall mean effects on overall paid employment, formal employment, and monthly earnings were small, positive, and significant; however, significant heterogeneity was observed. Moderator analysis was performed in an attempt to explain between-study differences in effects. The overall paucity of research in this area, together with specific gaps and methodological limitations, affirm the need for strengthening the evidence base. Implications
for policy, practice and research are discussed.
