This is what used to be called MBO (middelbaar beroepsonderwijs). This type of training is offered in two forms and at several levels of difficulty. The forms, or 'learning tracks', are known as BBL and BOL, depending on the relative amounts of time the pupil spends in the classroom and working as an apprentice.
The levels of difficulty are known as: assistentenopleiding, basisberoepsopleiding, vakopleiding, middenkaderopleiding, and specialistenopleiding.
