Vocational training provides job-specific technical training for work in the trades. These programs focus on providing trainees with hands-on instruction, and can lead to certification, a diploma or certificate.
KASTOC training has been adapted to build young people’s skills in a variety of formats and settings, including public and private secondary schools, vocational technical institutes, colleges, businesses, and youth-serving non-profit organizations.
How we help
- On the job: KASTOC works with businesses to include life skills as part of their new employee orientation and on-boarding. Lessons are selected to meet specific employer needs. This model encourages retention of entry-level employees as they adjust to their new workplace.
- Post-secondary education: KASTOC works with universities, technical schools and vocational training providers to tailor a life skills training schedule for their students.
- Secondary schools: KASTOC works with middle schools and high schools to provide a selection of life skills lessons after school or staggered over the academic year.
- Stand-alone: KASTOC works with community-based organizations to offer a minimum of 30 life skills lessons over a six- to eight-week period. This most intensive application complements basic education, technical or entrepreneurship trainings.
