Estonia -More attention to vocational training -August 07, 2015

The education minister signed a package of support for the vocational education, establishing over the next three-year period 4,700 apprentice training positions to provide students with work experience and integrate training more closely with the labour market. Apprenticeship or work-based learning takes place in at least 2/3 amount in a company, under the supervision of a mentor appointed by the company. This gives the student the opportunity to get experience of working while studying and the company can train new and existing employees. Apprenticeship training participants are entitled to all the customary rights of vocational school students but also wages are paid to the apprentice.
