Vocademia: an exploration and a construction


Mike Tomlinson, the Chairman for the group who created the diploma said,
"And the sad fact is that we need many more young people to go into the vocational route and to regard them as high quality and leading to high-quality jobs - and the risk is that we will fail to do that." 

He added: "My greatest fear is that vocational will continue to be seen as second best and available and taken by those who 'can't do anything better', as the phrase goes." 

My response to this fear, is to try to develop a theory which fundamentally combines academic and vocational learning, called VOCADEMIC learning and knowledge. What do you think of this idea?

I think its a great idea if practical subjects and tasks can be seen on the same level as academic work. The dipolma seems to be trying to do this but then its a case of how do we prove this to the parents... universities and ultimatly the world.
