The term vocationalization refers to efforts by schools to include in their curriculum those practical subjects which are likely to generate among students some basic knowledge, skills and dispositions that might prepare them to think of becoming skilled workers or to enter manual operations. The inclusion of practical or industrial arts subjects especially in the curriculum of secondary schools as part of a programme of general education is considered an essential element in the vocationalization of education. (Bacchus,1988: 31)
