Vocational education and training have been played an important role to increase the individual production, profitability of employees and development expansion. Highly skilled individuals in specific field always considered as an asset for development of any country. Recent researches and paper analyses have proved and accepted the abilities of trained individuals through vocational education all over the country. It is most important if you want to join technical field as well.

Due to overpopulation situation in the country, millions of people are unemployed and organizations are not ready to bear fresh candidates. This trend rapidly changing day by day and leading companies or institutions have schedule of courses/programs.

Pakistan Govt. is trying to improve the education system especially from 2001 and have started different projects for this purpose. Since millions of students are unable to get admission in private schools and colleges due to high expenses. Maximum institutions are offering short term courses from primary level to graduation with support of government. The government must also review the “National Education Policy” and specify the budget for this learning all over the country. It needs to open maximum training centers especially in rural areas to produce development skills.

In the end media should start a campaign to promote vocational education and its importance through all channels. The management of technical institutions should revise their policies to remove education flaws. The parents should focus and participate for their under graduate children instead of sending for labor work.
