Abstract?With the view of augmenting the employability skills among the young Emiratis, the promotion of vocational education in United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been a priority concern for the government. In the current scenario, the UAE provides a gamut of educational services to all the male and female students at kindergarten and higher education level. The same has been aimed for vocational education as it is rendered as a necessity for acquiring a knowledge economy. Nonetheless, the rate of adoption of vocational training and education is relatively low in UAE and requires extensive research to identify the shortfalls and solutions for them. Therefore, the main goal of this paper is to investigate the need for growth of vocational education in UAE, the government initiatives and the challenges encountered by the sector in the current scenario. The research reveals that though the need for vocation education is recognized by the government, the sector is plagued by numerous challenges that hinder its growth and development. With the essential insights and recommendations, this paper will be useful for the UAE government to strategize and deploy approaches for accelerating vocation education among Emiratis and assist them in achieving desirable jobs for sustainable future.
