The extent of quality delivery of the programs and services in Quality of Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) depends upon the demonstrated ability and willingness of the teachers of TVET institutions. Commitment of the teachers determines the extent of success in providing training and job placement of the TVET graduates. The efficiency and effectiveness of TVET programs is measured by the extent of employment or self-employment of the graduates. TVET programs and services depends upon the competent teachers and support system available in the TVET institutions. Teachers are the backbone of TVET education and responsible for guiding, mentoring, and counseling TVET students in addition to the teaching.

Fresh university or institute graduates employed or existing teachers in TVET institutions possess occupational skills like plumbing, electrician, automobile etc. However, the teachers lack the instructional skills to impart occupational skills to the students.
