This report synthesises the findings from the three-year program of research 'Vocations: the link between post-compulsory education and the labour market'. The authors explore how building better links between education and work can help provide a more coherent approach to vocational development. They propose the use of vocational streams and productive capabilities in the education system and labour market to achieve this. The authors also highlight a number of short-, medium- and long-term policy objectives.
