Page(s) 58-61

From the point of view of UNESCO inclusion in the sense of the leitmotif “Education for All” means that all people – without regard to special learning needs, gender, social and economic conditions – have the opportunity to share in high-quality education. For the dual system of vocational education and training this would mean granting immediate access to all young people interested in training after they leave school without producing their »training maturity« beforehand in the transition area. A corresponding reform of the training system would, however, be loaded with preconditions. The article describes how vocational education and training experts react to such a move and how they assess the chances of its implementation.
