10/07/2018 12:10:38 The Basque Parliament Passes its First Vocational Training Law

The Basque Parliament has passed its first Vocational Training Law. The strategic aim of this law is to boost dual training to improve employability and make companies more competitive. Structured in ten chapters, the legislation is in line with the new needs of companies and employers, and seeks to drive a model that has already been introduced in other European countries. The Basque Country thus continues to consolidate its international and European position regarding cutting-edge vocational training and specialisation. With a focus on dual training and combined with work experience, it is noted for a model based on integrated training, applied innovation and active entrepreneurship, including extending the Spanish-Basque bilingual teaching model, along with an emphasis on English and international outreach.

The Basque Country currently holds the presidency of EARLALL.
