dc.description.abstract This research is aimed at finding out factors that affect health sector candidate’s occupational competency in Addis Ababa. The research design used for this specific study was descriptive in which both qualitative and quantitative approaches were used. The sample size was 312 candidates and was collected at three health science training centers and three health centers. In-depth interview was conducted at the initial stage with purposive sampling of candidates, trainers and supervisors whereas quantitative data of self administered questioner used for candidates. Ethical standards were maintained before participating respondent candidates. Factors as bottleneck for the competency of health sector candidates were found to be subjectivity, unfairness, and lack of efficiency of assessors. In addition, gaps were also observed on capacity of training center and cooperative trainings. Attitude of candidates has association with candidate’s competency. Recommendations are forwarded to involve a group of assessors in the assessment process, to engage candidates more on cooperative training with continuous follow-up and supervision. It is also recommended to equip training centers with practical materials and limit the number of candidates at cooperative training so that everyone can be engaged in all forms of practical instruments. Institutional assessment to be continued as the best practices at training centers. en_US
