Several nations include technical and vocational education and training curricula in general education as a vehicle to promote economic and human capital development, eradicate poverty, unemployment, and inequality. This chapter analyzed TVET provision in Zimbabwe and its role in enhancing global citizenship among students through literature study of education evaluation reports, policy documents, and current research papers. Literature study indicated that the current TVET in Zimbabwe is blamed for a local learner skills-job mismatch and lack of specific emphasis on addressing global citizenship. The chapter argues that TVET in Zimbabwe should improve on enhancing global citizenship education for global labor participation of the graduates. More should be done to equip students with responsive skills compatible with modern technologies embracing the fourth industrial revolution. TVET curricula need to inculcate entrepreneurial and soft skills to produce socially relevant graduates with good citizenry ethos.
