Hi, Myself Tarun Malhotra here would like to share my viewpoints for the motion; on the topic “Vocational Education and Training courses should be introduced in all the schools”
Well, talking about Vocational education courses, they r those which prepare the individual for jobs demanding physicalities. They are independent of academics and to add to that they are traditionally occupation driven.

I would give a few points to substantiate my view why in fact vocational training would be a great source of learning if introduced in schools.

A few years back, being trade specific…Vocational training was considered a social stigma too.

Vocational Education leads the knowhow of a job being done. It is not about how one carves out the wood, or how one learns tailoring or sewing/knitting…it is all about how much attention one gives to the work assigned. The accuracy the precision and the attention the practical work require is what counts as important. This leads to a surge in confidence levels and self esteem.
2) SECONDLY, let us not forget that every individual does not have an aptitude to become a doctor an engineer or an MBA. A Vocational course of his or her own interest can actually let the individual to select a path for progression onto the next phase...
