OECD Reviews of Vocational Education and Training. A Skills beyond School Review of Germany.
The transition from school to work in Germany is remarkably smooth. An excellent vocational education and training (VET) system ensures that young people are well-prepared when they enter the labour market and can find jobs that match their qualifications.
