The literature on vocational training discusses practices in both the formal and informal sectors and from both government and non-government providers. One best practice common to all of these emerges. It is fundamental that the objectives and outputs of
training systems meet a country?s economic and social requirements. Vocational education must deliver skills for existing jobs
through labour market analysis. Informal sector training projects should start with a needs assessment of market niches and growth prospects and avoid saturated markets.Scheme planners should find out which industries are hiring and what enterprises are succeeding.
