The benefits of the original transfer are clear, with Spain and Portugal having notably high rates of youth unemployment and seeking new methods of learner and employer engagement. The guide itself is targeted towards use by individual companies considering participation in, or the implementation of, dual education and training. Best practice examples allow alignment with existing practice and facilitate overall understanding. There are no pre-conditions for using this guide. Contrarily, there are definite considerations for companies that are considering participation in Dual VET and the guide is notably informative in this respect, confirming practical pre-conditions such as costs, operational, personal and technical suitability, mechanisms for recruitment and assessment practices. Whilst initially targeted at the Tourism and Automotive sectors, there is little to suggest that the guide could not easily be adopted for use in other occupational sectors.
