Abstract

This study aims to investigate the Iranian TVET’s current challenges and obstacles which need to be tackled importantly and urgently by the country’s TVET policymakers. Although several steps had been taken to reform the country’s training system, but because of several structural, administrative, and executive barriers and malfunctioning of TVET, it has failed to gain its proposed goals. On the other side, the current school system in the Iran has a strong academic bias and is geared towards white collar employment. Therefore, the vast majority of secondary students have no prospects of paid employment and the inappropriateness of imported educational models is particularly apparent and may contribute to the particularly bad performance in its educational system (Azizi, 2009; Azizi, 2008).
