New strategies for VET in Luxembourg
image by rawpixel.com
The education and training system in Luxembourg reflects its geographical and socio-economic context: small size, close relations with neighbouring countries, multilingualism and a high proportion of foreign nationals, as well as well-established cooperation with the social partners.
The new strategies to be developed for vocational education and training in Luxembourg should also include proposals on how to improve the attractiveness of the current system or whether and how individual components could be restructured.
The following questions are addressed:
- How can the number of pupils who opt for vocational education and training be increased?
- How can the number of those who drop out of VET be reduced?
- What additional VET pathways can still be offered beyond the school system?
- How can the current governance and structure of the VET system be further improved?
The project is coordinated by VVA, 3s (Karin Luomi-Messerer and Monika Auzinger, supported by Julia Fellinger, Frederick Elliot Gaved) are responsible for analysing examples of good practice from other European countries and for organising and implementing peer learning activities with Estonian, Portuguese and Austrian experts.
