In vocational education and training, you can complete a vocational upper secondary qualification, further vocational qualification, specialist vocational qualification or a part of a qualification, as well as short training courses and further education. Studies can be carried out alongside work, in the form of apprenticeship training, as labour market training or personnel training.
A personal competence development plan (PCDP) is prepared for each student. The plan takes into account the previously acquired competence of the student and details what kind of competence the student needs and how it is acquired in different learning environments. Competence is demonstrated through real working life production and service tasks.
