The globalisation along with the interdependence of various economies has resulted in creating\ud extra dimension to the employability skills requirements. Various socio-economic indicators\ud have increased the pressure on vocational education sector and changed it from supply driven to demand\ud driven by the labour market requirements to minimise the existing employability skills gap. The paper\ud presents a study that has been conducted to identify the existing skills gap between School Based\ud Learning (SBL) and Work Based Learning (WBL) in Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) System\ud in Bahrain by asking teachers, Human Resources departments from industry, and industrial supervisors\ud to complete questionnaires. Their answers have been analysed quantitatively and qualitatively. Based\ud on these drawn conclusions, an improved employability skills model has been developed which shows\ud the importance of the required skills. This model will be the basis for suggested modifications in SBL\ud and WBL structure in TVE in Bahrain.\ud Keywords: School Based Learning (SBL), Work Based Learning (WBL), Technical and Vocational\ud Educatio(TVE), Employability, Skills, Cognitive, Affective, Psychomoto
