|Abstract:||Technical and Vocational education and Training (TVET) offers skill training programs to enhance human capabilities and to enlarge peoples‟ choice, to provide learning which would make people productive in designated areas of economic activities. Accordingly the National TVET strategy of Ethiopia aims at creating a competent, motivated, flexible, self-reliant and innovative work force by facilitating demand-driven high quality TVET relevant to all sectors of economy. To this end, the TVET Colleges are playing a pivotal role in producing capable manpower, improving current market demand and solving of societal problems, by employing the Cooperative Training approach (MOE - TVET Proclamation 2004). The objective of this study was to assess the practice and challenges of the existing implementation of Cooperative TVET training in “Entoto and Misrak” Polytechnic Colleges in Addis Ababa. A descriptive research design and mixed qualitative and quantitative approaches were employed, in this research. A purposive sampling was used to select the Colleges while the simple random method was used to select sample respondents. The results of the data had come up with verifiable effects. It disclosed the presence of lack of cooperation among the key cooperative training stakeholders, less concern on the compatibility of trainees placement with the required competency, there is a shortcoming in selecting appropriate cooperative enterprises, there is a gap in the monitoring and follow up activities of the trainees by their colleges and enterprise supervisors, there is a problem in the enterprises‟ monitoring and assessment methods towards the trainees performance. Thus, it was concluded that the implementation of Cooperative training program in the Addis Ababa TVET Colleges and enterprises had challenges that require the consideration of both institutional and human conditions. Finally, necessary recommendations i.e. Close cooperation of responsible bodies in creating awareness and provision motivational incentives to stakeholders was forwarded.
