Vocational education

After graduating from basic or secondary school, it is possible to continue studying at a vocation school in order to learn a trade. Vocational schools enrol adults as well. These schools provide professional education, teaching practical skills to start work as a welder, assembler, electrician, gardener, cook or hairdresser. Modern vocational education institutions offer many exciting specialties.

Vocational education statistics provide information, such as:

  • how many vocational education institutions there are in Estonia and where they are located;
  • which fields of study are available;
  • how many vocational students and graduates there are.

Statistics on vocational education are necessary to make plans and decisions concerning vocational education.
