The school experiment »DuBAS – dual vocational training with the higher education entry qualification in Saxony« was launched at two vocational school centres in the region. Under the Vocational Training Act, high-performing pupils with the intermediate school leaving certificate are able to obtain the general university entrance qualification and also a vocational qualification within four years. Academic support for the project was provided by the Institut für Berufspädagogik und Berufliche Didaktiken der TU Dresden [Institute for Vocational Education and Vocational Didactics at Dresden’s Technical University]. The article highlights initial experiences four years after the introduction of the training course.
