The VET training system in Denmark

In Denmark education is compulsory for ten year- forms 0-9.  An optimal 10th year of basic education is offered and attended by just under half a year group.

After having completed basic primary school, different options are open for the students. The pathways can basically be divided into an academic track and the vocational track.

Who is concerned?

VET in Denmark is dual in the sense that periods of practical training are alternated with periods of school-based training. Two third of total curricular time in the main programmes is spend on practical training within an enterprise (or alternatively in a school workshop if there are no apprenticeship places available) and one third on school-based education. Before the student can start the main programme, he or she has to have concluded an apprenticeship contract with an employer.
