Different vocational training programs can be followed concurrently with certain secondary courses. Thanks to this principle of concurrence, the student can simultaneously complete their vocational training and their general education in Secondary 4 or 5, instead of waiting to finish Secondary 5! They can thus alternate between their general education that remains to be completed, and vocational training that directly implicates them in the field they are attracted to.
Since the fall of 2014, pilot projects of concurrency in Secondary 3 have been offered to students. They must be 15 years old on June 30 of the school year preceding the beginning of the project and have obtained their Secondary 2 prerequisites in the three basic subjects.
Different partnerships exist between vocational training centres and high schools specifically to promote school perseverance among youth who need to live concrete and relevant experiences.
