vocational training and adult education

This is a large sector of education which was formed in 1996 with the fusion of four types of education: secondary vocational education (MBO), the former apprenticeship system, adult education (VAVO) and basic education. In Britain this is often referred to as 'further education'. In South Africa it is 'further education and training', or FET.
