Vocational education... is also being opened to adults, who may use it to obtain a vocational qualification. The report summarises the country’s socioeconomic background and planned VET reforms. It explains how VET for young people and adults is currently organised and addresses topics such as teachers and trainers, guidance and counselling, and financing.
