VET has a positive image in Europe

Around two in three Europeans (68%) think that vocational education at the upper secondary stage has a positive image in their country, while just under a quarter (23%) think the opposite. In every Member State, respondents with a positive opinion on vocational education and training exceed the ones that have a negative opinion on it. These are some of the results from Cedefop’s first opinion survey on VET in Europe, where European citizen’s perceptions on VET in the EU-28 member states have been explored.

The figure shows that the proportion of general and vocational education graduates with a positive image of VET is relatively similar, with only 4 percentage point difference between the two.
