in Khartoum state. The study directed out of two hundred respondents were sampled randomly, questionnaires were
distributed, 168 (84%) were properly filled and returned, 130 were males and 38 females from three various bodies

ANOVA and Independent sample t-test on SPSS version 20 for data analysis were adopted. The results revealed that

was a significant difference among the respondents’ ICT skill due to their ages and qualifications. Consequently,
more training needs to be conducted for TVET teachers in basic skills of computer use. Following the international
standards, the right decisions we are strongly recommending train/teach pre-service and in-service teachers on ICTs
