A vocational school, providing vocational education and also as referred
to as a trade school or career college, and school is operated for the
express purpose of giving its students the skills needed to perform a
certain job or jobs. Traditionally, vocational schools have not existed to
further education in the sense of liberal arts, but rather to teach
primarily or only job-specific skills, and as such have been better
considered to be institutions devoted to training, not education. However,
it could be argued that in recent years this has changed with vocational
schools providing education at competitively high standards.
In the USA, vocational schools are usually a post-secondary school, but in
some instances may take the place of the final years of high school. They
may be public schools and as such are operated by a government, school
district or other officially-sanctioned group, in which case they may or
may not charge tuition. Most purely vocational schools are private
schools; within this group they may be further subdivided into non-profit
schools and proprietary schools, operated for the economic benefit of
their owners. For a long time many proprietary vocational schools had a
poor reputation for quality in many instances, and for overpromising what
the job prospects for their graduates would actually be; this has been
largely corrected by more stringent regulation. The term career college is
reserved for post-secondary for-profit institutions. Vocational schools
have decreased severely in the United States by the replacement of offering
alternative trade classes at specific schools.
The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) is the largest
American national education association dedicated to the advancement of
education that prepares youth and adults for successful careers. ACTE's
core purpose is to provide leadership in developing an educated, prepared,
and competitive workforce.
