CASTILE AND LEÓN is a region known for the good functioning of its education system (the Spanish region achieving the best results in the PISA 2016 report) and is currently pioneering the implementation of Dual VET, through regulatory developments and partnership policies in close collaboration with businesses and social partners.
The autonomous communities in Spain have responsibilities for VET, consisting of developing and applying basic regulations and establishing all aspects of the VET system. Likewise they have executive and administrative powers to manage the education system in their own territory.
The Directorate General of Vocational Education and Training of the Government of Castile and León is the education authority of the Autonomous Community that manages the budget and sets priorities, targets and criteria on an on-going basis. Furthermore, it guides and monitors the general implementation, follow-up and evaluation at regional level.
116 different diplomas in vocational education are provided, classroom based and distance learning. The Directorate coordinates and supervises 194 educational centres (public and private) with over 38.000 students and 3.264 teachers (private centres excluded).
