Our contribution attempts to review basic vocational education programmes in Spain over the past 25 years. We intend to compare the evolution of these programmes in terms of conception and conditions of delivery in order to find out how different they are as skill-formation and remedial systems, as well as analysing how different political views have an impact upon such provision. We will focus on the current programmes in two regions in Spain where tourism is the main economic strength and source of employment. The authors have been working on several research projects investigating these issues since the late 1990s and we are currently working on two of them. [Part of this paper is based on work developed under two projects: LLP Leonardo da Vinci Projekt LLP-LDV-TOI-2013-LT-0125 "Application of apprenticeship in the vocational integration of socially disadvantaged youth" (APPRENTSOD). And "Success and dropout pathways in vocational training/education in Spain" (Project Reference: EDU2013-42854-R), funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness within the national Programme of Research, Development and Innovation.]
