    In the European Union, there are currently 5.7 million young people under the age of 25 without a job. In Greece and Spain, the unemployment rate for this age group is over 50 percent. The affected countries are looking for ways to improve the transition between school and employment and are increasingly turning their sights on the dual vocational training system. Combining theoretical reflection in vocational schools with practical in-company experience not only ensures that the business world will have skilled workers with real-life training, but also facilitates the young people’s transition into the labor market.
