Types of vocational training

The following is a list of "natural types" that may not be complete

Initial lower apprenticeship training

Switzerland has an interesting "apprentice" system. This initial vocational education concerns about 80% of the 16-20 olds and mostly is delivered through "dual mode", i.e. an apprenticeship in a business complemented by an average of 1-2 days of schooling / week in a vocational college. Germany and Danemark have a similar system.
