Training

As the saying goes, vocational education is a great thing… for other people's children.

Another side of this conundrum is that there is more need for vocational education than ever before.

Youth unemployment, particularly among those without training or qualifications, is a scourge in many countries. But at the same time employers are warning about skills shortages and not being able to find the right staff.

"Globally, the stigma of vocational education often reduces it to a second choice to academia," concludes the study, carried out by the Centre for Business and Economics Research.
