Vocational Courses Courses in India

Vocational Courses are certain disciplines which enables individuals to acquire skills which are traditionally non-academic and totally related to a specific trade, occupation or vocation. They are also known as Technical Education, Career and Technical Education (CTE) or Vocational Education and Training (VET) as they directly develop expertise in a particular group of techniques or technology through manual or practical activities.

Vocational courses are primarily designed in such a way that they impart a thorough application-based study wherein theoretical concepts of a field are not studied independently, but are subordinated to the understanding of techno-operational aspects of specific jobs. Till few years back such courses were looked down upon by majority. With diversification in various fields, the industry requires more and more skilled people. With huge demand of skilled workers the popularity of the vocational courses has risen. These courses are offered at comparatively less cost than the university or college degree and some are also available online.
