The vocational and technical education system in Turkey includes two main dimensions: theoretical (school training) and practical (in-company training). Vocational education policies and activities are mostly carried out by the MoNE within the framework of Law No. 3308, which came into force in 1986 and Law No. 4702 of 2001, which brought about changes to the system, establishing new and strong links of co-operation with industry and commerce. The vocational education system includes:

• Vocational and technical high schools providing training in 228 occupations and giving access or leading to the qualification of specialized worker and technician;

• Apprenticeship training, which is a combination of mainly practical training provided in enterprises and theoretical training provided in vocational education centers;

• Informal education can be provided primarily through vocational education centers.
