The developing countries like Bangladesh have a large number of unskilled and unemployed people. The Government of the Peoples’ Republic of Bangladesh has been trying to develop TVET sectors. To enhance productivity, stimulate competitiveness, and bring about economic development, skill developments are key aspects for ensuring quality of Technical and vocational education and training (TVET). TVET is the provision of skills, knowledge, attitude, and values needed for the place of work. TVET has been used by several developed countries as an instrument of development. However, in Bangladesh TVET has been left to the periphery and its significance has not really been embraced. TVET training centres have been neglected or overtaken by institutions concentrating on purely academic education. Thus the aims of the article were to explain the essential roles of TVET for human resource development (HRD) and to explore the inherent problems associated in TVET programs in Bangladesh. The article has addressed four roles of TVET for HRD (i) Socio-economic development, (ii) Global Competitiveness, (iii) Career mobility, and (iv) Flexibility in Qualifications Recognition. The common problems of TVET program have been identified with some literature review and documents analysis; the categories of those problems were (i) Engaging community and industry in TVET, (ii) Financial difficulties, (iii) TVET students to pursue higher education, (iv) Relevance to the labour market and traineeships, (v) Difficulties faced by TVET teachers, and (vi) Some emerging problems of TVET. The expected outcomes of the articles were to consider the problems of TVET program to improve its quality. The researchers suggest the TVET professionals to take some initiatives to overcome the problems of TVET for HRD of the country.
