Technical and vocational education and training has emerged as one of the most effective human resource development strategies for under developed countries like us need to embrace in order to train and modernize their technical workforce for rapid industrialization and national development.Vocational schools are schools that teach people specific skills they need to obtain a job. If a person does not wish to spend years at a traditional college, he can enroll in a vocational program. Vocational programs vary according to each school. Some vocational schools offer medical assistant training, while others teach automotive repair, electrical, carpentry, mechanical. Additional programs include computer repair, graphic design, drafting, culinary training and information technology.
One of the advantages of vocational training is that it focuses on practical skills that students can put to use in a job immediately. Vocational training programs typically focus on teaching students how to perform the tasks that would be required of them in the workforce in various fields such as auto maintenance, carpentry and medical assistance. Students that focus on academic education may have difficulty finding jobs that put their education to use.Another benefit of vocational training is that training programs can prepare students to enter the workforce more quickly than many academic education programs. Many high schools offer vocational training programs that enable students to gain practical skills before reaching adulthood. In addition, technical colleges often offer programs that prepare students for specific career fields in two years or less, which is a significantly smaller commitment than attending a four-year college. Getting into the workforce faster means students can start earning income and saving sooner.
Vocational training programs tend to be less expensive than longer academic educational programs, such that they can result in considerably less debt and greater freedom with income. In addition, vocational training programs offered through public high schools allow students to gain practical work skills without having to pay tuition. High school students may still benefit from vocational training even if they intend to pursue a traditional college degree as skills learned may grant opportunities for seasonal, such as summer, employment.Students benefit differently from different types of instruction. Some students are able to learn easily through reading, discussion and lecture while others may excel at learning through hands-on training, experimentation and trial and error. Vocational training focuses on hands-on activities, which can be beneficial for students that prefer active experience to more passive activities.In conclusion, we need forming Somaliland society for promotion of establishing vocational and technical education schools to be financed by Somali-land business community as individuals or groups as no-profit making schools as the same will minimise our unemployment dilemma for both on short and long term as well
