Abstract

This article has two objectives: to analyse the implementation of dual vocational education and training (VET) in Spain and to study the school-to-work transition of young people who complete dual VET. The article draws on a study that was based on 43 interviews, a discussion group and document analysis. The results show that dual VET has been implemented through a school-based model, as opposed to the firm-based ‘German’ model. Participants may be employed on the basis of training contracts or internships. Whichever approach was taken, we found that young people who have completed dual VET enjoy a rapid school-to-work transition.
