There are three types of vocational education and training (VET) providers: centres of excellence, colleges and professional schools. The latter provide programmes in secondary VET while the first two offer all types of VET programmes: initial and continuous secondary VET, post-secondary VET and post-secondary non-tertiary VET.
Work practice (work-based learning (WBL)) is part of VET at all levels: secondary, post-secondary and non-tertiary post-secondary VET, both in initial and continuous VET.
