ISCED
Categories
First skill level ISCED category 1, comprising primary education which generally begins at ages 5-7 years and lasts about 5 years.
Second skill level ISCED categories 2 and 3, comprising the first and second stages of secondary education. The first stage begins at the age of 11 or 12 and lasts about three years, while the second stage begins at the age of 14 of 15 and also lasts about three years. A period of on-the-job training or experience may be necessary, sometimes formalised in apprenticeships. This period may supplement the formal training or may replace it partly or, in some cases, wholly.
Third skill level ISCED category 5 (category 4 has been deliberately left without content) comprising education which begins at the age of 17 or 18, last about four year, and leads to an award not equivalent to a first university degree.
