Contrary to popular belief, vocational colleges aren't just for students
who couldn't get into university. Students attend vocational colleges for
a number of reasons, including getting some practical skills or experience
before going to university. For many people it is a good two-year long
alternative to longer higher education programmes.
Whereas in universities the education concentrates more on theory and
abstract knowledge, in vocational colleges the education usually prepares
learners for careers that are traditionally non-academic. In other words, it is
directly related to a specific occupation or vocation, and students develop
expertise in a particular technique or learn some practical skills.
Till the end of the twentieth century, vocational education focused
more on specific trades, such as automobile mechanics or welding, and
was therefore associated with the activities of lower social classes. But the
situation has changed. Now vocational education exists in industries such
as retail, tourism, information technology and cosmetics.
In fact, a lot of famous people studied in colleges before they rose to
the tops of their fields. Can you name any of these people? Do you know their story?
