The study investigated some factors that could influence vocational training in the garment industry. Entry age and educational background appeared as strong factors affecting how fast training period could be. Entry age of 16 years and minimum educational background of J.S.S.C. were found to be suitable for successful training. The part played by other factors such as socio-economic background, natural endowment and frequent interruption of training were discussed. Policy guidelines were suggested to improve vocational training in the garment industry.
