Vocational education and training (VET) are also referred to as vocational training and vocational and technical training (ETS). It prepares learners based on manuals or hands-on activities that are traditionally non-academic and related to a particular profession, job, or vocation, hence the term in which learners participate.
This is often referred to as technical education because students directly develop skills in a particular technical or technology group. Vocational education training and career are usually used synonymously.

Vocational training can be compared to training in a generally broader field of science. It can focus on abstract theory and conceptual knowledge, traits, or higher education. Vocational training usually takes place in secondary or post-secondary education. Usually interacts with the apprenticeship system to improve skills.
Until the end of the 20th century, vocational training was focused on specific professions such as auto mechanics or welders. Therefore, it is associated with lower social class activities.
As a result, this has been associated with a kind of stigma, and professional education is associated with traditional and conventional student practices. But as the labor market becomes more focused and the economy attains higher skill levels, governments and companies are investing more and more in the future of professional education.
This is done through publicly funded training organizations and financially supported training or internship programs.
