Problems facedby women in accessing skilling programmes
Individuals can benefit from vocational skill training in a variety of ways, including increased earning potential and job security. Women, on the other hand, continue to face significant barriers to taking advantage of these opportunities.
Lack of knowledge about the opportunities available is among the main obstacles. It's possible that many women, especially those living in rural and low-income areas, are unaware of the existence and accessibility of vocational skill training programmes. Women may not view vocational skill training as a practical option for their jobs due to a lack of information.
The lack of access to occupational skill training for women is also influenced by cultural and societal standards. Women are sometimes discouraged from pursuing employment outside the home and may encounter opposition or even discrimination if they do. Due to their potential for rejection or other unfavourable outcomes, this may deter women from seeking occupational skill training.
Increased knowledge of possibilities and programmes for women to receive occupational skill training is necessary to overcome these hurdles. This may include focused outreach and education initiatives in underdeveloped and rural areas, as well as initiatives to alter cultural perceptions of women in professions.
In addition, programmes and policies supporting women's access to and completion of vocational skill training should be implemented. This can include assistance with childcare, flexible scheduling alternatives, and money for training programmes.
