It was descriptive research and survey design in nature. Data was collected from 70 principals, 251 instructors of the vocational institutes across Pakistan by using self-developed questionnaires who were selected by applying systematic random sampling technique via self-approach. The collected data was arranged and coded. The coded data was entered into computer for analysis. Inferential and descriptive statistics was applied to analyze the data with help of Statistical Package for social Sciences (SPSS, version 20.0) software. After analysis it was found that although, female and male principals and instructors of public/private vocational institutes had the same opinions about the role of NAVTTC for the implementation of NSS 2009-2013 yet instructors of Sindh province had different opinion about the role of NAVTTC in the context of instructors training. According to them, NAVTTC effort for conducting instructors’ training to improve their skills for the achievement of NSS objectives is not sufficient in their province. There were also few E-learning center established to provide them assist accordingly. It was also found that wherever NAVTTC is provided training to the instructors is being proved fruitful because according to them, after attending that training, they were able to use their imagination to draw out lessons from new material and improving their intellectual skills and set behavioral limits as well. Moreover, E-learning center are being establish with the cooperation of TEVTA, to train the instructors which enable instructors to compare new material with existing background knowledge and deal with new behavior.
