The study is intended to assess that whether thebasic principles and functions 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 The findings of the study revealed that the practice of career guidance principles and functions had been extremely low. Majority of the respondents have lack of awareness about the objectives and functions of career guidance program. Besides, career guidance program promotion activities had been almost non-existent. The trainees were not informed adequately about labour market information in relation to their field of study and future career developments. Most of the training programs were not demand driven and there is mismatch between supply and demand.To alleviate the above problems good human relation, training, research and developing policies and legislation should be done by all concerned bodies for career guidance program implementation.
