Routes into vocational education and training

Coverbild: BWP 1/2019

How will vocational education and training fulfil the objective of offering initial VET for everyone and of facilitating relevant career prospects? In the light of falling training figures, this issue investigates the question of which young people opt VET, what their motives are for doing so and how they find a route into training. At the same time, it also focuses on the types of support provision that makes it easier for young people to gain this access.
