A diploma of secondary education has many advantages: it allows you to embark on a follow-up programme, find an interesting job, get a promotion, boost your earning power…

Adult secondary education offers vocational training, technical training and general secondary education (ASO). Adult secondary education is flexible: you compose your own package, decide on the number of teaching periods you wish to follow and you can even qualify for exemptions. 

In Brussels, adult secondary education is organised by CVO Brussel (site in Dutch) and CVO Lethas (site in Dutch).
