In this study, we argue that vocational education and training in Spain have increased their status and value over the past four decades at a steady and consistent pace.

Billett, Stephen; Choy, Sarojni; Hodge, Steven – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2020
In Australia, the relatively low standing of vocational education and the occupations it serves is of growing concern. This standing is held to contribute to an increased number of young people preferring to engage in higher education and to look past vocational education as a potential post-school pathway. Consequently, there are skill shortages…
