This paper outlines the results from a research study conducted by the authors to identify the existing employability skills gap between TVE system in Bahrain and industrial requirements. Based on the study results, an on-line WBL module has been developed and will be introduced in SBL, delivered with innovative technology. The module aims to improve teaching and learning strategies, develop TVE students’ competencies, and meet the industrial requirements. The module has been designed to have elements from the day-to-day working environment of an industrial setup as well as various elements from the interface of industry and society. The on-line WBL module is expected to make a major contribution to the improvement of TVE in Bahrain because it will challenge all students and teachers to recognise, make informed responses, and work comfortably with the diverse requirements that they encounter in the WBL environment.
