The development of the scientific and technological progress of 1957 in the country created prerequisites for the need for the introduction of polytechnical education in an average general education school. As a result, a decision was made to reorient ten-year general schools to polytechnic schools. This, in turn, posed one of the most important tasks of training in higher educational institutions of highly qualified teaching staff in the subject of labor training. To solve this problem, in 1957, at the Tashkent State Pedagogical Institute, they began to create an educational and material base for teacher training "Physics and the basics of production." In 1957-59, on the basis of the "Physical" faculty, a laboratory was established for engineering technology, training workshops, metalworking workshops and carpentry.
In 1959, a curriculum was approved for the specialty "2120 - Teacher of General Technical Disciplines and Labor", as a result, the "Industrial Pedagogical Faculty" was established to train the relevant personnel. At this time only one department of "Machine building and metal technology" operated at the faculty. The head of the department was appointed associate professor M.T. Toirkhodzhaev.
Since 1959 in different periods the faculty has been called "Engineering Pedagogical", "General technical disciplines", "Industrial and pedagogical" and now the faculty is given the name "Vocational education”.
In different years the faculty was headed by the following learned teachers as deans: in 1959-1962 Associate Professor G. Abdurashidov; 1962-1967, the senior lecturer DNGaniev; 1967-1974, senior lecturer SA Khodzhaev; 1974-1978, the senior lecturer MTTourkhodzhaev; 1978-1980 years prof. U.N. Nishonaliev; 1980-1986 years prof. A.Yu. Yuldashev; 1986-1992 years prof. AI Vorobyev; 1992-1993, senior lecturer MS Yakhyayev; 1993-1997, senior lecturer AR Rasulmukhamedov; 1997-1998, Associate Professor B. Khusanov; 1998-2008: Associate Professor N.A. Muslimov; 2008-2010 the senior lecturer А.I. Avazbaev; 2010-2001 years associate professor VNSattorov and since September 2011 the senior lecturer Ya.I.Ismadiyarov.

The faculty's faculty also conducts classes at other faculties of the university.
There are 5 departments at the faculty:
" Information Technology"; "Methods of professional training," "Engineering graphics and methods of teaching it," "Visual arts and methods of teaching it," "Labor training and design."
The departments of the faculty developed and approved a plan for joint work with general schools, professional colleges, academic lyceums, as a result of which agreements on mutual cooperation were concluded.
The teaching staff of the departments for professional colleges create textbooks and teaching aids.
On innovative corporate cooperation between higher education, science and industry, a plan of measures has been developed. At the departments, scientific research activities are built and work plans are prepared taking into account the modernization of all activities.
The scientific practical activity of the faculty departments is conducted according to the project calculated for 2012-2014 under the number 1-148 on the topic "Technology of modernization of the content of professional education on the basis of improving the professional competence of teachers" on the basis of the state program approved by the Ministry of Higher Education, as well as fundamental research on the topic "Technology of organizing laboratory classes in training workshops."
In order to efficiently conduct research work at the departments, the equipment of the educational and material base of the departments is being strengthened, in particular, funds for the acquisition of computer systems are being allocated, the ranges of Internet use are being expanded, information and resource bases for storing materials published abroad are being created at the departments.
