"the confederation of Swedish Enterprise: It is a faster route to the job"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. There are plenty of vacancies in the secondary that lead to a job. It shows a review of the figures from the preliminary gymnasieantagningen as the confederation of Swedish Enterprise done. There is still the opportunity for pupils to change their choices to courses that are in demand on the labour market."
"the choice of high school programme is divided in two parts. A regular choice as was made at the beginning of the year and the omvalsperiod going on right now. Confederation of Swedish Enterprise's review based on input from the antagningsnämnder which administers the professional groups around the country. The dossier shows what the students have chosen and what they have chosen."
"for example, There is the whole 2 103 job vacancies in the construction and anläggningsprogram around in Sweden. 1 477 vacancies in the electricity and energy programme. 1 846 job vacancies in automotive and transportprogrammet. And 1 932 job vacancies in the technology programme."
"at the same time, many enterprises difficult to find new employees with precisely the skills that upper-secondary vocational programmes provide. For businesses, it is vital to be able to find new employees with the right skills. They are often a prerequisite to grow and develop new products, which leads to more jobs and increased prosperity."
"After many years of fewer applicants for vocational programmes seems to the trend now to have turned. It is, of course, good. However, the increase is from low levels and it is slow. More needs to be done."
"Was the third student in the secondary education the social science programme or the business and management programme. They are good programs, but they usually require several years of additional training to lead to jobs. Vocational programs are a faster wall-to-job. And they don't close the road to college because it is right to study for university entrance."
"Now, they run the risk of empty seats on the vocational programs that lead to training programmes that provide sought-after skills are laid down. An example is the Stockholm engineering school. A school that is important for the construction industry but that the city of Stockholm in spite of it, choosing to put down."
"the Municipalities need to take greater responsibility for the important training courses. That only on the basis of the students ' choice and not at all take into account the labour market needs is not enough."
"Parents also have an important role in professional groups. Only ten per cent of the parents believe that their children should go to a vocational programme. The corresponding figure for the college preparatory programs is 55 percent. We need to convince both the parents and the municipal authorities on vocational education and training, leading to good prospects for the future."
"Furthermore, yrkesprogrammens the status and attractiveness of the increase. The municipalities need to work more closely with companies and industries, and thus make the courses more popular. At the same time we need industries to be even better at showing what the possibilities are for a vocational programme."
"We can, and must, do more together but the primary responsibility is skolhuvudmannens. The responsibility and cost may not unilaterally be pushed over on business. It also requires a better dialogue about design and planning of the training."
"It is unfortunate that so many places on the vocational programs are empty. A good training leads quickly to the first job and also gives great opportunities for good jobs throughout their professional life."
