Abstract

The globalisation along with the interdependence of various economies has resulted in creating
extra dimension to the employability skills requirements. Various socio-economic indicators
have increased the pressure on vocational education sector and changed it from supply driven to demand
driven by the labour market requirements to minimise the existing employability skills gap. The paper
presents a study that has been conducted to identify the existing skills gap between School Based
Learning (SBL) and Work Based Learning (WBL) in Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) System
in Bahrain by asking teachers, Human Resources departments from industry, and industrial supervisors
to complete questionnaires. Their answers have been analysed quantitatively and qualitatively. Based
on these drawn conclusions, an improved employability skills model has been developed which shows
the importance of the required skills. This model will be the basis for suggested modifications in SBL
and WBL structure in TVE in Bahrain.
