Not everyone in our community is a PhD or an engineer; rather, we have a large number of immigrants who have had to leave familiar trades behind – trades that may not be available here in the United States. These individuals do not want to be a burden on anyone, but they need a way to support themselves.
Vocational training is education within vocational schools which prepares people for a specific trade. It directly develops expertise in techniques related to technologies, skills, and scientific techniques to span all aspects of the trade. Vocational education is classified as using procedural knowledge.
Generally known as “Career and Technical Education” (CTE) or “Technical and Vocational Education and Training” (TVET), these services prepare people for specific trades, crafts, and careers at various levels of expertise. Craft vocations are usually based on manual or practical activities, and they are traditionally non-academic but related to a specific trade, occupation, or vocation. It is sometimes referred to as technical education as the trainee directly develops expertise in a particular group of techniques.
We have created the vocational training Initiative in an outreach effort to provide a path for our community to grow and be productive part of the grater nation.
Coming soon, our list of proposed classes.
