The continuing trend towards academisation and a shortage of highly-qualified skilled workers and managerial staff are creating major challenges for the craft trades sector. In order to cover requirements, the craft trades need to put attractive provision in place that will enable them to secure the services of more young trainees who have obtained a specialist upper secondary school leaving certificate. This article presents a three-way study programme which serves as an example to show how cooperation between the craft trades sector and institutes of higher education can succeed in such an aim.
