The degree of geographical mobility of the TVHS students (in pursual of their studies) and their families is relatively high.
Respondents were asked to give the reasons that had made them choose a TVHS as opposed to a general school.
After going through the experience, the overwhelming majority of the respondents (93.3 per cent) are still of the view that the TVHS system was the right choice.
After finishing a TVHS, students have the choice to continue their career in TVET, seek some other alternative further education or join the labour market.
Contrary to some beliefs expressed in the literature of HRD that TVET is stigmatized as the choice of the less successful (see for example The Congressional Commission on Education, 1993:19, ILO, 1992:50, UNDP, 1989: 12), the survey of potential trainees manifests clearly that the choice of TVHS for the majority (94 per cent) was not because they had not been able to pursue general (academic) education, but because TVHS offers better prospects in the labour market.
That students of TVHSs are satisfied with their education may not lead directly to a proposal to expand the TVHS system.
