This research was designed to be a thought piece to explore different visions for vocational education and training.

This is the final report of the review which took place between March 2023 and September 2023.

The review focused on differentiation between Initial Vocational Education and Training (IVET) programmes, usually carried out in the initial education system and when making the transition into working life, and Continuing Vocational Education and Training (CVET) programmes, which generally take place after initial education training and after entry into working life for adults to gain or enhance their knowledge and skills and continue their professional development.

Findings are drawn from the desktop evidence review and the primary research across three key themes: strategic and systemic aspects of VET; curriculum and delivery aspects of VET; and the benefits and impact of VET.
