dc.description.abstract PCF5 Sub-theme: Livelihoods // Distance education can play a crucial role in the economic development of a developing country like India by meeting human resource requirements. It caters to the requirement not only those who are unemployed but also of those who are on the job. Their knowledge can be updated through continuing education programmes. Vocational education and training like other forms of education and training is an investment in human capital, which brings benefits in the form of enhanced labour productivity, and higher levels of output and training. One of the most important functions of the education sector is to provide skill and technical manpower to various sectors of the economy. It is widely argued that the structure and pattern of education, especially at the secondary stage, has to be purposefully re-oriented towards Vocational and Technical Education to join together with the projected future pattern of employment avenues and requirements. Of late, most of the countries of the world have given due importance to vocational education at senior secondary stage to provide diversification of educational opportunities so as to enhance individual employability, reduce the mismatch between demand and supply of skilled manpower and provide an alternative for those pursuing higher education. // Paper ID 131
