Vocational education, the alternative route to conventional education, refers to formal training and instruction for technical, paraprofessional, skilled, or semiskilled occupations. It can also be termed as job-oriented education.  It helps a person in becoming skilled in a particular field at a comparatively shorter time.

Vocational Education is gaining preference among young people who realise that the path of earning a degree is longer than acquiring specialised skills through a course.

IHE offers vocational programmes for the hospitality and catering industries which not only lead to professional certification, but also secure work placement in Cyprus.
