Uganda Vacational Training Schools, Education, Learning

What is vocational training and education all about in Uganda?

Vocational training is based on non academic studies; its aim is to ensure that all trainees get jobs. Training involves both manual and practical activities. Technology is one of the fields that is liked by the trainees; it’s at secondary or post secondary level. Vocational is quite different from the tertiary education because its learning is based on procedural knowledge. The aim of such training is to build up core skills, provide counseling services to the citizens as well as get chances to advance their learning. Among the courses done include, electronics, electricity, motor vehicle, sheet metal and plumbing, wood working as well as brick laying. After a particular course, a certificate of appreciation is awarded to the trainee
