Vocational Home Economics is a skill oriented field of study which equipped the learners with saleable skills that make them self reliance/self employed. To equip the learners, the teacher must also be equipped with competent strategies for effective teaching and learning. The paper looks at Home Economics Education as a Vocation and discussed some effective strategies every teacher should use for teaching. The paper recommends that learners should adapt to change and develop initiative and self direction, while the Home Economics teachers should reposition their teaching strategies for effective teaching and learning in the 21st century.
