Most students attend vocational school because they want to get a new job, learn new job skills, or advance in their present jobs. Last year, the number of newly enrolled vocational school students reached a new high of 5.5 million!

People often find that at some point later in their lives they want to update their skills to take advantage of current industry demands. Class size, course offerings, course duration, costs, staff qualifications, school size, and availability of equipment in schools all play a part in developing new job skills.
