Why Vocational Training & Education?

Vocational Training and Education

Education and gaining a qualification is not limited to the young, it also is readily available to just about everyone. Vocational Education & Training is a practical approach to training, meaning that it is mostly about having a person demonstrate they can perform a task or a group of tasks. In addition, being able to answer questions or write a short paragraph on what needs to be done to complete a task successfully.

Not everyone who leaves school wants to go onto University, however most people recognise they do need a qualification to compete for new job roles or promotions. Vocational Education & Training provides that opportunity to set individuals up for success. It is available to those entering the work force and those who have been in the work force for many years.

Southern Cross Group has a Vocational Education & Training business that is currently focused on a number of business qualifications that meet the needs of job seekers and those already in the work force. (more…)
