TECHNICAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Technical Education designed at upper secondary and lower tertiary levels to prepare middle level persons (technicians,
middle management etc.) and at University level to prepare engineers and technologists for higher management
positions. Technical education includes general education, theoretical, scientific and technical studies and related skills
training. The component of technical education may vary considerably depending on the types of personnel to be
prepared and the education level.
Vocational Education is designed mainly to lead participants to acquire the practical skills, know-how and
understanding necessary for employment in a particular occupation or trade or class of occupations or trades.
Successful completion of such programs can lead, but not necessarily to a labor-market relevant vocational
qualification recognized by the competent authorities in the country, like Ministry of Labor & Employment, Education
etc.

Training is learning experience that leads to the acquisition of a skill. It is a process for preparing people for different
jobs enabling them to improve their job-capacities and potentials.
