Vocational Education chiefly aims at realizing the aspirations of the 10th standards, who desire to turn to job-oriented education. It was in 1983-84 that Vocational Education first came into existence with 19 VHS Schools as a terminal course at Higher Secondary Level. But the revision of the curriculum of this scheme equal to that of Pre-Degree was done in 1985-86
The Central Govt had admitted this systems as a centrally sponsored scheme during this time and had sanctioned financial assistance.
An independent directorate exclusively for the VHSE has been started in 1985. It situates at the Thiruvananthapauram. There are 7 Regional Offices of VHSE having jurisdiction of 2 revenue districts each,and they help in efficient administration and control of VHS Schools.
VHS Courses are being conducted in the Existing High Schools both in Government and Private (Aided) Sector . The Head of the Schools is redesignated as the Principal of VHS section for administrative convenience.
