VET: Developing Content


There are two significant challenges that you face when you create vocational skills training courses. First, the audience for vocational skills training is not a homogeneous one. Second, there is no specific universally accepted vocational pedagogy. So, what principles guide the design of vocational skills? Which pedagogical principles and which andragogy principles should one apply? You will find answers to these questions, and more, in the three-course curriculum.

This course, VET: Developing Content, is the second course in the three-course curriculum. This course also maps to the universally accepted methodologies, such as the DACUM Approach and the ADDIE model against the various work outputs that are a part of the VET content development process. This course will help you understand the challenges in creating vocational training content, how to create the content outline using instructional principles, and how to script a unit using the frameworks.

A sample case study will showcase how content is developed in the VET space.

  1. Very descriptive and beneficial


    The course is very descriptive and created in a very methodical manner and gives a huge insight into the entire content development process.

  2. Developing Content


    The second in the space of Vocational Education and Skilling. This course is a logical successor to the course on Model Curriculum. The frameworks introduced here are logical and can be applied in the real world scenario. The modules are well laid out and are of apt length for the learner to consume. Highly recommended
