Abstract: Given the positive role vocational training has played and continue to play elsewhere in the world, the Tanzanian Government embraced vocational training as a tool for the development in the country. The purpose of this study was to compare practice of Vocational Education Teacher Training between Tanzania and China. This study employed quantitative research strategy. Data was collected by use of questionnaires and the data analyzed by the aid of Statistical Package of Social Scientists Program (SPSS) and Microsoft Office Excel. The findings unveiled that a majority of the respondents from China have both had academic and job experience on what they are teaching, while most of Tanzanians had only academic experience. China has extensively invested in Vocational Education Teachers’ Training compared to Tanzania, and support given to Vocational Education Teachers’ Training in Tanzania is not satisfactory. Also, the findings portray that unlike China, VET teachers in Tanzania are not satisfied with training opportunities and dislike their careers which make them working while waiting for another alternative. Findings designated that the government of China is very serious in ensuring Vocational Education Teacher Training quality but in Tanzania, the government to the moderate extent is serious in ensuring such quality. Correspondingly, study findings revealed that Vocational Education Teachers’ Training are not provided with reasonable resources and standards in Tanzania which call for immediate resolution. The conclusions of this study are; (i) compared to Tanzania, Vocational Education Teachers Training in China is very inspiring as large extent VET teachers possess occupation relevant knowledge, academic and job experience on what they are teaching; and China’s Government has invested in Vocational Education Teacher Training; (ii) Vocational Education Teachers in Tanzania are not satisfied with training opportunities in their career; they do not love their job to great extent and they just work because they do not have any other alternatives compared to Chinese Vocational Education Teachers; (iii) Also, in order to enhance the training of Tanzanian Vocational Education Teachers Training, education agencies work together to shape and develop the Vocational Education Teachers Training.
