An effective professional training sector needs to offer high-quality programmes that produce highly-skilled workers. This chapter looks at three key features of high-quality programmes: first, systematic work-based learning integrated into programmes; second, effective teacher professional development that balances the need for teaching skills with up-to-date practical experience in industry; and third, attention to numeracy and literacy skills.
