In Luxembourg, secondary education is divided into general and technical secondary education.

General secondary education (enseignement secondaire) imparts general knowledge in humanities and social sciences, literature, mathematics and natural sciences. It prepares pupils for higher education and is recognised by a secondary school leaving diploma (Diplôme de fin d’études secondaires).

Technical secondary education (enseignement secondaire technique) essentially prepares pupils for their working life.

Its higher classes (pupils aged 15 to 19) are divided into three regimes (régime).

  • Technical regime (régime technique) has a standard duration of eight years and leads to a technical secondary school leaving diploma (Diplôme de fin d’études secondaires techniques) providing access to higher education.
  • Technician’s regime (régime de la formation de technicien) lasts seven years and leads to a Technician’s Diploma (DT - Diplôme de technicien) providing access to higher technical studies.
  • Vocational regime (régime professionnel) lasts six years and either leads to a Vocational Aptitude Diploma (DAP - Diplôme d’aptitude profesionnelle) granting job market access as qualified worker or to a Certificate of Vocational Ability (CCP - Certificat de capacité professionnelle).

A reform of vocational education and training, which concerns the Technician’s regime and the Vocational regime of technical secondary education, has  been gradually implemented since September 2010.

In the lower classes of general and technical secondary education (pupils aged 12 to 14), a competence-based approach has been introduced since the school year 2008-2009: basic skills levels (socles de compétences) have been introduced for almost all subjects of lower secondary education. The syllabi as well as the evaluation requirements have been adapted accordingly.
