Every country invests in formal education to develop and empower its
citizens with the capacity needed to practically work and transform their
surrounding environmental resources into productive employment after
graduation. The high and growing rate of graduate unemployment in Uganda suggests however, that most of the formal education graduates are not practical enough to turn their local environmental resources into gainful work and effective contribution to national development. It is argued in this paper that the failure of most graduates to be practical would not have occurred had the management of Uganda’s formal education made effective use of the activity-based informal training when preparing students.

Keywords: Relevance; Curriculum reform; Graduate unemployment.
