Vocational education and training standards describe the work tasks to be carried out within the framework of a specific occupational activity as well as the related knowledge, skills and abilities.
One of the goals of vocational education is to prepare youth and adults for an increasingly competitive and technological workplace. Thus it is important to develop and implement systems of performance standards and core measures to evaluate the extent to which vocational programs meet workplace needs and to prepare vocational and technical students for successful entry into either the workplace.
