TCAT-Pulaski subscribes to the philosophy that occupational education should be made available to those persons who want, need, and can profit form such education. To provide a basis for meeting this philosophy the primary purpose of the College is to meet preparatory to entry into business and industry. This includes thos who may be disadvantaged or handicapped. We further recognize that vocational technical education is the kind of training that people need to qualify for more than eighty percent of the available jobs in America. We feel that the purpose and philosophy of all trainging programs should be to dignify and to upgrade the social status of the vocational technical jobs and the people who work in the position.
