Ethiopia - Almost nine out of 10 vocational students fail exam

Ethiopia - Almost nine out of 10 vocational students fail exam


By Kirubel Tadesse

Of the 10,548 graduates of various Technical Educational and Vocational Education and Training Institutions (TEVET), only just over 11 per cent passed the national competence exam, Capital has learnt.

Offered by the Ministry of Education (MoE), the national competence exam was introduced last year after being designed for Ethiopian industries to enjoy qualified graduates with a National Competence Certificate. Only 1, 203 students (11.4 per cent) qualified for the certificate, official data has revealed.

The certificate does not only certify TEVET graduates, but is also offered to certify professionals with years of practice, who have been educated informally. MoE also put passing the exam as one criterion for TEVET students to join academic studies.

That is not the failure student but the EPRDF training policy. The same will be true for University graduates. EPRDF should examine its policies and make a discussion with stake holders: community, firms, students, teachers’, policy makers…that what should be done and their opnion should be included in policy making. Education is a base for dev’t. However, EPRDF did it alone. Now, what would be the solution. Examine your failed policy and plan for future!

To whoever knows the answer,

I have heard long time ago that there is not such thing as grade 10+2 curriuclum in Tigray. I mean Region 2(Tigray) still follows the old curriculm of Ethiopia. Is that true or am I misled?

Shame on the results anyway? But I think that was the case back then when I graduated from highschool. Less that 5% passed the ESCLE to make their way to the Universties/college(of course, I was one of them :) )? So, after all talks and propoganda by TPLF, there is little, if not none, change(at least aparently) to the education system in improving students understanding of subject.

Peace y’all!

Tekulaw,

I have heard the same thing as well. I try not to belive it, but, with this fact of 9 out 10 students failing this exam, I belive it. To me it is really sad but there is nothing we can do about it. The policy of dumming down the other population seem to be working. May God help us all.

The article is meaningless as it does not give comparison with past exam results. Pass rates have been historically poor and will continue to remain poor with growing student class size, and teachers struggling academically and financially.

I read this news two years ago and did not believe then. Here is it. It was Oromo community who raised it. It is sad we all are in the same boat.

“{They’re} moving beyond political repression into a much more subtle way to disenfranchise the entire community,” says Garnet Mackenzie. “{They’re} limiting people’s ability to go to school, not allowing Oromo people to go into secondary school – to cut the knees off the intellectual class of Oromo living in Ethiopia.”

… there are two separate education systems in Ethiopia. People of ethnicities favored by the government go to better schools and onto college, leading to good jobs and leadership positions. If you’re Oromo, he says, it’s difficult to get beyond the 10th grade and the government regularly expels Oromo students from universities.

Why is this a surprise, even Our University Graduates are not the brightest Apples in the Bunch!!

The Ethiopian educational system is crap and just helps keep the Woyane in power as they just produce Dumb Graduates ever year.

Imagine University Graduates who can’t speak a world of English then they all run to Middle east to become Maids ???

I believe that the Ethiopian government could do something about it. The exam has two parts the practical and the theoretical and most failed both.
The government should evaluate the private and its own colleges. This is a shame for all of us!!

Why wonder!!
This is the result of a deliberate policy of implementing educational apartheid on Ethiopians by the wretched, terrorist, and murderous TPLF. This is only one of their diabolic plans. More will follow until they are dealt with for good by Ethiopians from East to west and from North to South. The critical question is how long should this crime continue? When are we going to say enough?
