The current vocational education and training (VET) system in the Netherlands originated in the training initiatives undertaken by private actors in the artisan and industrial sectors in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Its central features are corporatist administration, significant state involvement, and the dominance of school-based training. Since World War II, the state has played a more active role in VET, and the general education component of VET has increased. The 1980s saw a return to a clearer focus on the needs of the labor market.
