This essay aims to analyse the functioning, strengths, and weaknesses of work-related learning as shaped by the latest reform of the schooling system (2015). Due to lack of statistical data, we apply critical reasoning and comparative analysis with a view to showing that work-related training is indeed able to increase employability through two main channels: first, it raises the human capital of recipients by providing general work-related competences; second, it enlarges the network of contacts that may turn out to be useful to find a job once entering the labour market. Nonetheless, work-related learning does not provide job-specific work experience, which requires a longer time span. There is still a long way to go towards involving firms - especially in southern regions, where they are less numerous - as well as towards overcoming the cultural resistance from many stakeholders.
