Vocational training

Vocational training comprises activities intended to provide the skills, knowledge and attitudes required for employment in a particular occupation, or a group of related occupations, in any field of economic activity. Measures to promote equality of opportunity of women and men in training and employment should include:

• education to encourage women and men to play an equal role in changing traditional attitudes;

• vocational guidance enabling girls and women to take advantage of vocational training opportunities and widening the scope of the training, which should not be confined to typically "female" spheres (domestic science, needlework, cooking, care work, etc.);

• equal access for girls and women to all streams of education and vocational training for all types of occupations, and further training to ensure their personal development and advancement;

• day-care and other facilities for all workers with family responsibilities to allow their access to normal vocational training;

• vocational training programmes for women and men above the normal age of entry into employment and for those who wish to re-enter work after a break for child rearing.
