DUAL VOCATIONAL LEARNING

Dual Vocational Training is a learning method that combines the training provided at educational centres with the practical training that students acquire in the company, improving students’ labour skills and opportunities for labour integration.

Some of the advantages for the company are that it can create apprenticeship positions adapted to its needs, save time in the process of hiring and training new employees, save initial training costs for new employees, as well as facilitate the generational change in the company.
