In order for vocational training to be successful, the successes achieved through labor market, a knowledge-based economy, the struggle against social inequality as well as the awareness of a combined and highly qualified vocational framework is required. Having all those things present to some extent in Bangladesh, the country has been suffering from lack of skilled manpower due to the poor formulation and implementation of strategies. If the country wants to achieve competitive advantage through its large workforce then there is no alternative to transform manpower into human resource by the proper implementation of vocational education and training. This article represents the current scenario of vocational education and training in Bangladesh and identifies the drawbacks of the present framework and suggests some strategies to improve the implementation of the vocational education and training programs in Bangladesh.
