- Publisher's summary
Technical and vocational education helps to empower marginalized sections of society by increasing their employability. However, access to skills training provided by formal technical and vocational institutions is often limited for these sections of society. Women from poor communities are especially disadvantaged in this regard due to community or family beliefs that undermine their potential for career development and economic independence. Gender Issues in Technical and Vocational Education Programs is an essential critical resource that probes the issue of gender equity in specialized educational programs, such as vocational or technical education programs. It also presents global initiatives that are being undertaken to enhance the access to technical and vocational education programs to all citizens. Featuring coverage on topics such as digital economy, skill development, and STEM education, this book is ideal for academicians, researchers, social scientists, educators, policymakers, government officials, and professionals.
