percentage difference of 8.5 points. Once four years have passed, the difference is 7.2 points, with labor integration rates of 69.6% and 62.4%, respectively.
This distance is even greater in the case of higher-level VET, since 66.2% of dual students in the 2016-2017 class found work the following year, compared to 49.9% of non-dual students. At four years, the rates are 74.5% and 62.5%, respectively.
