Stable number of pupils and apprentices

In 2010, the number of apprentices in upper secondary education decreased by 1 800 persons from the previous school year. At the same time the number of pupils in upper secondary education rose by 2 000, thus making the total number of pupils and apprentices stable.

As of 1 October 2010, there were 34 250 apprentices in upper secondary education, which is a decrease of 5 per cent from the previous year. The main explanation for the decrease is that fewer apprentices attended Reform 94 courses. Whereas more than 8 000 apprentices attended Reform 94 courses in 2009, only 1 700 did so in 2010. A total of 32 500 apprentices attended the Knowledge Promotion programme in 2010; an increase of 4 500 from the previous year. All the vocational education programmes had an increase of apprentices in 2010.
