Abstract: The purpose of the study was to examine the attitude of students; particularly those enrolled in soft and hard fields of the study, towards TVET program as a function of the trainee gender, field of study and level of education. The study was conducted in Afar Regional TVET colleges of Adadale and Lucy. Four hundred (male=150 and female=250) trainees were randomly selected from level three and level four trainees. The result suggested a more favorable attitude of students towards TVET program and its value. Significant gender and educational level, differences in attitude towards TVET and in perception on the value of TVET program were found while that of field of study yields non significant attitude differences. On the other hand, students did not want to study TVET while they were in grade 10. Nevertheless, they exhibited more interest to TVET after they participated in the program. The three most important reasons for students to join TVET were scoring in the 10th grade national exam, personal interest and expectation for further training. The finding of the study suggests working actively to promote the interest of student towards TVET and to enhance further research on students’ attitude and perception towards TVET.
