Completion rates in upper secondary education and training
One of the main objectives of primary and secondary education in Norway is that all pupils who are able to do so should complete upper secondary education and obtain qualifications that will prepare them for further study or work.
This chapter primarily looks at the degree to which pupils and apprentices complete upper secondary education. It describes how many of them complete and pass within a given period of time, how many proceed from one level to the next, and how many do not make such progression. We also look at how newly qualified skilled workers fare in the labour market and at what we know about those who drop out of upper secondary education and training.
