There are so many subjects out there that can be taken on by students in schools today, and there have recently been reports about parents and teachers actively discouraging students from talking vocational studies.
Many vocational subjects are seen as hands on, such as hairdressing, cooking and building, but there are always going to be students out there who have their own interest and academic subjects are certainly not for everyone. Vocational studies are needed to help society runs the way it does, because the country needs skilled manual workers.
There is a wide range of students out there who want to have a vocational career, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing, and it can be disappointing to see that many students have been put off studying a ‘manual’ subject.
A career should be something an individual enjoys and these subjects can help them gain the skills they need to enter their desired career.
