The publication has been developed for educators particularly vocational educators, guidance and counseling personnel and directors of gifted education programs to bring about a greater awareness of the occupational opportunities for gifted and talented students through Vocational Education. Many potentially satisfying kinds of work and exciting occupational choices are open to the gifted and talented student through vocational as well as professional preparation. In this brief document, it is hoped that educators will see the merit in making a concerted effort to allow the gifted students the option of exploring the alternatives available in vocational preparation as they search for a life-satisfying career in keeping with their interests and abilities. There is a marked need for vocational educators and counselors to work together to bridge the gap between the gifted/talented and students traditionally enrolled in vocational programs. This booklet calls to the attention of secondary and post secondary personnel the need for cooperation in recruiting and enrolling the gifted and talented in appropriate vocational programs.
