This paper has assessed the tracing institutional role of technical and
vocational education and trainings (TVET) for socio-economic
development of women in rural and urban areas of Baluchistan. In this
descriptive study, a sample of 178 TVET qualified women via three stage
stratified sampling technique revealed the role of TVET institutes for
socio-economic uplift of women in Baluchistan. The analysis of data
reveals that factors like, TVET institutional set-ups, skills qualifications,
general education, social/tribal institutes, regions, ethnicity, self-employed
status, parents’ education, household head characteristics, and TVET trade
selection/preferences play roles in enhancing socio-economic
development of women in Baluchistan. However, both the non-supportive
social/tribal institutions and weak TVET institutional set-ups for women
hinder their socio-economic developments. The findings suggest for
investment in establishing TVET institutional set-ups for enhancing
human capital formation of women. Moreover, to enhance their levels of
living there is a need to align TVET policies with the constraint
social/tribal institutional se-ups in rural and urban Baluchistan.
