Guidance on the system and validations

How does Vocational Training work?

Vocational Training is configured as a system integrating the different types of training on offer: regulated (via the Education System), occupational and continuous (via the Vocational Training System for Employment in the Labour Field). As indicated in the regulations, the different ranges of training are structured around the CNCP (National Catalogue of Professional Qualifications).

Organic Law 5/2002 of 19 June 2002 configures the National Catalogue of Professional Qualifications as the institutional driver of the vocational training system applicable to the whole national territory.

The Catalogue was created with the aim of facilitating the suitability of vocational training for the labour market and its integrated nature, as well as lifelong learning, worker mobility and labour market unity.

The National Catalogue of Professional Qualifications comprises the qualifications identified within the productive system and the training associated with them, which is divided into training modules.
