The VET training system in Slovakia 

Compulsory education in Slovakia starts at age 6 until age 16 and encompasses 9 years of basic education and one year of upper secondary education. The basic school is composed of two stages; the first is lasting for four years and the second one for five years.
Traditionally there were three streams of upper secondary education: general academic provided by grammar schools and two vocational streams provided by secondary specialised schools and secondary vocational schools.
