    • After the ESO - Educación Secundaria Obligatoria stage in the Spanish education system, pupils go on to Bachillerato , with its more traditional academic approach, or to Formación Profesional, which has a vocational focus. FP comprises two cycles, one for students from sixteen to eighteen and another, running parallel to university education, for students of eighteen and over. After both cycles students qualify for a specific occupation, or to go on to more specialized courses. See also LOE - Ley Orgánica de Educación (2006) .
