The VET training system in France

The French education system has three levels: The first level consists of preschool and primary education, the second level of lower secondary education and upper secondary education and the third level relates to higher education. Compulsory school begins at the age of six and ends when pupils turn 16, thereby including primary education, lower secondary education and the first year of upper secondary school.
