Since October 2007 after UNESCO hosted the Youth Forum as part of its General Conference in Paris, the question is: “How far have developing countries gone with the employability of youths thereby facilitating their transition from school to work?” In this paper, the authors through a qualitative study x-ray the critical issues involved in the question raised above by advancing the case of adopting technical and vocational education and training (TVET) through distance as a holistic strategy to boost competitive workforce, especially in developing economies – such as Nigeria. Both strategies are provided to achieve parity in youth employment. In addition, these are checked against gender-based discrimination in employment levels in the country. The authors stress that youth integration in the workplace requires gross sectorial policies that enhance gender parity with the capacity to generate employment opportunities. // Paper ID: 240
