ABSTRACT
Models are replicas of the real objects. Models remain the most favourable and popular medium of instruction in Vocational and Technical Education. Models provide direct experience through symbolic conceptualization feeling. This study provides an insight into how models can be used to promote accurate and fair understanding of the theories and practices of the old and newly emerging scientific innovations in vocational and technical education. Models bridge the wide gap between theory and practice and inform learners on how to position instructions to gain better from the principle and practices, processes and products giving users opportunities to be heard and seen at work. Models make learning attractive and interesting, easy to understand and long last in memory. Models can be used for both formal and non-formal education in individual and group activities. The use of models in various contexts in Vocational and Technical Education has revealed that models are vital tools in concept formation, attention sustenance, increase in the meaningfulness of abstract concepts, encouraging deeper processing of knowledge theory boosting class performance
