Analysis of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) experiences numerous reviews and deliberations. In the earlier publications, these analyses introduce the diversity of research trends. Nevertheless, no review paper examines TVET research trends in the literature following its farreaching studies. However, the critical drive to satisfy youth’s economic demands now compels complete execution in the entrepreneurial education domain to create awareness of its weight to revive the economy. Therefore, this systematic review aimed to present literature from 2010 to 2020 associated with TVET research trends following thematic review. The researcher attended a keyword search, supported by a filter applying inclusion criteria from Scopus, Mendeley, Science Direct, Eric and Emerald Insight databases, and recognised 69 scholarly articles. Consequently, its thematic review confirmed six central themes; the need to revise current TVET educational approaches and strategies, entrepreneur intentions, the need for substantial networking with industry players, promote selfemployment, foster self-efficacy and entrepreneurship motivations. It then authenticates the discussion trends in the TVET literature. This field requires prospective studies on TVET to review additional questions that arise.
