Although an almost united parliament in 2014 agreed on a reform of vocational training in order to increase the recorded, it's gone the opposite way since the reform, the importation.

In 2019 has vet recorded about 4500 fewer students than before the reform, and approximately 1200 fewer students than the first years after the reform.

It is particularly in the omsorgsfagene which, among other things pædagogassistent and social and health care assistant, there are noticeably fewer, which will be recorded.

With the reform was, among other things, introduced a karakterkrav of 02 in Danish and maths from a ninth - or tiendeklasses exam.
