The decreasing popularity of vocational school among young people can be reversed by making it easier for carpenters, chefs, masons and other blue-collar workers to attend continuing education courses after receiving their initial qualifications. Morten Østergaard (Radikale), the higher education minister, said one way to do that was to make it possible for people who had studied at a vocational school to take university-level courses. Studies show young people view vocational schools as a dead-end, and Østergaard said changing entry requirements to university could encourage more people to learn a trade. – Jyllands-Posten
