What is the difference between vocational education and workforce education?
Vocational education has the expressed aim of preparing someone for a career. Typically these are programs that require a certain number of hours to complete and can lead to a certification or degree.
Workforce education means contiuous learning. You might already have a career you enjoy but want to learn new skills. These courses do not necessarily lead to a career, certificate, or degree.
Please keep in mind that vocational education and workforce education can be used interchangeably so please make sure you investigate a program fully before chosing to attend.
