Why is vocational and technical training often under-estimated by students?

Many students believe that bachelor’s degrees are more valuable and respected than vocational and technical training. This perception is changing as scores of students pursue degrees for which there are not a sufficient number of available jobs.

On the other hand, numerous employment opportunities exist in the technical and vocational sectors of the economy, with massive opportunities for career growth.

Does the idea of a career-focussed, specialised education appeal to you? If you want to purse a course of study that will equip you with the skills you’ll need for a specific job, then vocational and technical training is for you.

Would you like to enter the workplace as a professional sooner rather than later? Vocational and technical training usually takes one or two years, compared with four years to complete a bachelor’s.

Are you eager to make a career change? Perhaps you studied one area but you’re unhappy in that field, or you’re not finding suitable employment. Vocational and technical training may provide the ideal way for you to switch careers, since it’s an accessible education that often leads directly to a job. 

Explore the multitude of careers that follow from vocational and technical training. Career paths are limitless in fields such as dental hygiene, government and public administration, education and training, and construction.
