Expert Answer:

Vocational education refers to the training provided to students to make them fit for certain professions such as crafts, engineering, nursing, hospitality etc. Our education system needs to strike a fine balance between academic education and vocational education while designing the scholastic curriculum.

In addition to a dearth of skilled manpower in our country, the education provided in schools and colleges seems to have less practicality. These problems can be rectified if vocational education is imparted to students from a young age.

To build a strong nation, we need skilled citizens who are blessed with theoretical and practical knowledge. Therefore, the education system should focus on imparting vocational skills to students which would contribute to the nation’s progress.
