The key factors affecting the transition to VET are the same in all of the surveyed countries they are all closely linked to the perceived belief of career development.. Across the countries VET students consider a surprisingly limited range of options regarding their choice of a further occupational path.. There is a need to pay significant attention to out-of-school activities; in some countries, one out of four VET students does not learn after school at all.. Aptitudes for classical learning are very low in most countries:  ...   generic competencies than those with lower grades.. ICT: In general, students from all countries are skilled in general tasks when using a computer for writing, transferring files and copying and pasting to manage information and their attitude to ICT in everyday life is positive.. Personal motives are more important for VET learners in their future careers than salary, job security or reputation.. For some VET learners, the next step in their career is to enrol in further education.. For more detailed findings, please see our final report.. here.. Key project results..
