What Is Vocational Training?

Vocational training is used to prepare for a certain trade or craft. Decades ago, it used to refer solely to such fields as welding and automotive service, but today it can range from hand trades to retail to tourism management. Vocational training is education only in the type of trade a person wants to pursue, forgoing traditional academics.

Finding the right course for your needs:

We are often asked about the types of courses and professional development that work best. The answer is that it depends on your exact situation and needs, including your job role, level of experience, and your industry not forgetting your personal preferences.
The golden rule here is that what works for one person or company may not work for others, and can also vary over time and across different circumstances. This is why it is always a good idea to try and compare courses that are delivered using different training methods, developing an understanding of what is most effective given a certain set of requirements.
