    Abstract

    Through a review of past and present literature on technical vocational education and training and reporting on current policy, this dissertation aims to investigate, and attain a fuller understanding of the role vocational education fulfils, both for economic contribution and global competitiveness. The report will evaluate the new framework for the formal provision of information, knowledge and skills for the lifelong learner. Thirdly, the report will evaluate TVET placement within a learning and industrialised society. This report aims to draw on comparative text, government strategy and policy documents to inform an argument that technical vocational education and training is recognised as an essential framework supporting a capitalist society. That government policy on post compulsory vocational education for the social demands for employment and prosperity are driving vocational learning towards meeting the demands of an employer led interpreted global and economic need, not that of the lifelong learner.
