‘Vocational training’ is a phrase that is often used by education and training institutions. But what exactly does it mean, and how will it benefit your career?
Vocational training definition:
Businessdictionary.com defines vocational training as:
“Training that emphasizes skills and knowledge required for a particular job function (such as typing or data entry) or a trade (such as carpentry or welding).”
Vocational training can also happen on the job, at the behest of your employer. In this context, training can either be provided directly by your company or by a third-party training provider sourced by your company.
Employers often help their employees enroll for relevant training programmes, as it holds tax benefits for them if they are liable for skills development levies.
