Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the state of career guidance in selected government Technical and Vocational, Education and Training (TVET) colleges of Addis Ababa. The study is intended to assess whether the basic principles and jUnctions of career guidance programs are implemented or not to achieve TVET objectives in relation to career guidance and to identify related problems encountered in the process of implementation. To this end, out of the five government TVET colleges; three TVET colleges were selected using purposive sampling technique. By using a descriptive survey method through questionnaire supplemented by unstructured interview relevant data, gathered from four groups of respondents (career guidance officers, deans, instructors and trainees), who were principal stakeholders in the TVET program implementations. A sample of 425 respondents included in the study. The career counselors 6 (4 male and 2 female) and deans 8 (6 male and 2 female) included in the sample by using availability sampling techniques, where as 99(75 male and 24 female) instructors and 312[150 male and 162 female] trainees were selected by using stratified random sampling techniques. The instructors were drawn from main and entrepreneurship courses, where as the trainees were selected only from second and third year 10+2 and 10+3 trainees. The data collected analyzed and interpreted by using percentage with additional sources from related literature on national and international level. The findings of the study revealed that the practice of career guidance principles and jUnctions had been extremely low. Majority of the respondents have lacle of awareness about the objectives and jUnctions of career guidance program. Besides, career guidance program promotion activities had been almost nonexistent. The trainees were not informed adequately about labour market information in relation to their field of study and jUture career developments. Most of the training programs were not demand-driven and there is mismatch between supply of out put and demand of trained workforce. There is no refresher training on career guidance and the career guidance office is not represented at different levels of decision making. Moreover, instructors with BAI BS ftdflll the qualification requirement of MOE for TVET college program, however, instl11ctors with MAl MSc were below the requirement and most of the college management bodies lacle knowledge about the close relationship between TVET and career guidance program. To alleviate the above problems qualified, competent and experienced bodies should be assigned, that is the right person on the right place. Above all good human relation, training, research and developing policies, guidelines and legislation for implementation of career guidance programs should be undertaleen by Ministry of Education, regional bureaus and colleges.
