  1. Vocational school

    A vocational school, providing vocational education, is a school in which students are taught the skills needed to perform a particular job. Traditionally, vocational schools have not existed to further education in the area of liberal arts, but rather to teach only job-specific skills, and as such have been better considered to be institutions devoted to training, and not liberal arts education.

Typically, most career colleges specifically design their curricula for fields that have the best current and future growth potential.
