MORALES RAMIREZ, María Ascensión. The dual learning system: an answer to the employability of youth?. Rev. latinoam. derecho soc [online]. 2014, n.19, pp.87-110. ISSN 2448-7899.

The crisis of youth employment points out only one aspect of the labor market because of the dimensions of its own. Around the world a "dual learning system" has emerged. This system seeks to remove some of the obstacles that young people face when trying to insert themselves into the workforce: the lack of skills and mostly, work experience. This model combines theoretical learning at school with hands-on training at a company in such a way that it enhances the skills acquired by the trainees to respond to the needs of the company while at the same time, young people can better their own employability. The system has been successful in the countries where it has emerged (after a series of historical-cultural events and has developed over the span of 100 years). This model is quite complex: it requires building up the right kind of relation between school and companies and a detailed planning to ensure both the provision and the quality of the training, in addition to engaging social participation. With this, the question itself is whether the system has the same results in other countries.
