Abstract Vocational education high school students comprise a significant proportion of the school-based population. Recent studies indicate vocational education students are at greater risk for cigarette smoking behavior than their non-vocational education counterparts. Vocational students have higher prevalence rates of smoking than do non-vocational students and are more likely to report that they expect to be smoking in the future. Characteristics of adolescents who participate in vocational education and their cigarette smoking behavior are reviewed, as well as the need to develop, implement, and evaluate new educational approaches designed to prevent cigarette smoking and the use of other tobacco products in this difficult-to-reach population.
