Vocational education not an 'option for losers'

Vocational education not an 'option for losers' | lsen education | Scoop.it

If the perception that vocational education is an "option for losers" persists, unemployment and social instability will continue to escalate.

Mervi Jansson-Aalto, a leading voice in Finnish vocational learning, told the Mail & Guardian technical institutions in her country now attract more than 50% of the country's student population.

The country has shaken off the image of these institutions as a "dead end". "They are a real option in finding a job and an equal route in terms of not being a dead end. Later on in your life if you want to go to university that's quite possible."

As in many other areas of educational reform, South Africa can learn from Finland.

This is an interactive learning space which welcomes contributions from followers and encourages debate

I love this idea, but how long is it going to take to implement from a practical perspective... how many children will pass through the system before we can implement?
