Vocational education and training refers to vocational upper secondary education and training and vocational further education and training that lead to a qualification. Vocational upper secondary education and training leading to a qualification is intended for young people and adults.
In addition to their educational institution, students in vocational education and training acquire competence at the workplace and in online learning environments. Each student studies according to their own study plan and individual leaning needs. On-the-job learning is supported for example with apprenticeships. Application and completion of studies is flexible and studies can be completed in a shorter time than previously. Young people and adults are provided the same education and training services. Vocational education and training provide students with the competence and skills they need to apply for higher education studies.
Vocational education and training is provided by municipalities, joint municipal authorities, organisations, foundations or state enterprises that have an authorisation granted by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
