Dual Vocational Education and Training arises in Spain
within the European policies about employment and
training for young people. However, the lack of an indepth legislation, the high level of unemployment and the
poor resources, caused by the economic crisis, or the low
role played by the Administration, has led to a limited
model. Every Autonomous Community, productive sector, high school or company, has implemented their owns
solutions for each limitation, developing different models
in Spain. This situation does not allow us to conclude that
Dual VET improves the school-to-work transition only by
itself, but rather there are some conditions that must be
fulfilled in its implementation to achieve the positive
effects aimed. This article studies the perspectives of social
actors who design and implement the model to analyse
the development and possibilities of the Dual VET
