Resumé

This chapter examines how the different systems of initial vocational education and training (VET-systems) in four Nordic countries connect to the labour market and how they provide access to employment for the students. The aim is to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the four VET-systems on this issue. The chapter is structured in four parts. First it outlines the theoretical and methodological approach, and secondly it examines the connections to the labour market of each of the Nordic VET-system and how they have Next, the role of employment protection and active labour market policy is examined and some recent initiatives to connect initial VET closer to the labour market are presented. A special interest is taken in attempts to revive and strengthen apprenticeship programmes. The conclusion summarises the strengths and weaknesses in the ways the four Nordic VET-systems connect to the labour market
