Lower secondary education

Parent term: Secondary education

Programmes at ISCED level 2, or lower secondary education, are typically designed to build on the learning outcomes from ISCED level 1. Usually, the aim is to lay the foundation for lifelong learning and human development upon which education systems may then expand further educational opportunities. Programmes at this level are usually organized around a more subject-oriented curriculum, introducing theoretical concepts across a broad range of subjects. [...]Some education systems may already offer vocational education programmes at ISCED level 2 to provide individuals with skills relevant to employment.)
