With the professional world rapidly changing, the need for high professional qualifications increases constantly in many sectors and trades.
Vocational training offers a wide range of training possibilities based on the requirements of the professional world. It allows young and adult people to obtain recognized qualifications and employees or job seekers to broaden or update their professional skills.
In Luxembourg, vocational training covers three 3 parts :
- initial training (formation initiale) within the frame of secondary technical education ;
- continuous vocational training (formation professionnelle continue) in the context of life-long learning ;
- accreditation of prior learning and experience (VAE - validation des acquis de l’expérience) leading to a professional certification through the recognition of skills acquired during prior paid or unpaid activities.
