Description

As our economy is moving towards knowledge-based post-industrial era, graduates need to re-equip themselves to meet with rapidly changing expectations of employers and society. Vocational education institutions also need to provide a seamless learning experience to students and enhance their lifelong learning abilities. General education should form an integral part of the total education experience, instead of ad hoc extra-curricular activity. It should be well integrated into the existing vocational training curriculum. This paper discusses the arguments for such grounds and suggests how this can be implemented.
