In order to address self-employment with entrepreneurship, there are various forms of capital and intentions that influence individual engagement in self-employment. In consideration of this, the study investigates the influence of entrepreneurial intention and autonomy on self-employment under different levels of TVETs support. The study employed both descriptive and explanatory research design and analyzed the data. The data was collected from 124 sample respondents through a questionnaire using descriptive and hierarchical regression analysis. From this, the finding indicates that the entrepreneurial intention and autonomy were not at a good level, while they significantly influence self-employment. Similarly, the presence of human capital development improves the influence of psychological intentions on self-employment. Therefore, TVET colleges should focus more on human capital development rather than social capital in improving self-employment. Moreover, future research should test the influence of other variables such as TVETS support flexibility and entrepreneurship training as determinants of self-employment.
