ABSTRACT

Vocational education and apprenticeships are designed to bridge industry needs and graduate capabilities. It is the possibility of students finding work. Training and apprenticeship are also important factors. This study has shown a beneficial association between vocational education and training and employment. These initiatives and plans attempt to increase enrollment rates, increase female labour force participation, increase economic growth, and decrease poverty and unemployment. However, even though the pandemic has slowed the implementation of the Jordanian government’s strategies and plans by at least two years, there is enough hope in the latent potential of literal youth to put Jordan’s economy back on track. Employability of graduates can be greatly boosted via vocational education and training and apprenticeship models of learning. As a result, Jordan will see less poverty and unemployment. The data were collected using a questionnaire and analyzed using SPSS and Smart PLS. As for apprenticeships, they are linked to employability but not to the industrial curriculum.
