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.
