Vocational training is a flop
December 12, 2006 1 Comment
Two out of every five students who go to MBO vocational training colleges leave without any qualifications, the MBO council said today. Some 40% of the population studies at an MBO college.
MBO or Middelbaar Beroeps Onderwijs stands for vocational education and training and is followed by some 40% of school leavers. There are currently 630,000 students in the MBO sector, 485,000 of them taking part in regular courses and the rest following adult education programmes. The government invests about €2.6bn – 12% of the education budget – on MBO schools and colleges.
