The objective of the vocational education system is to produce professionals as demanded by the nation for human resources. One purpose is to produce graduate students who will become productive and creative citizens. Entrepreneurship has emerged over the last two decades as arguably the most potent economic force the world has ever experienced. With that expansion comes a similar increase in the field of innovation education. Introducing the OBE concept into the innovation education will lead to a series of achievements in vocational colleges. While it can be argued that some legitimacy has been attained in the current state of this education, there are critical challenges that lie ahead. This article focuses on the trends and challenges in innovation education for the 21st century. An innovator is a person who does or undertakes something. Policy makers also believe that increased levels of innovation can be reached through OBE education.
