Best suited to the needs of children who have learning difficulties in primary school, it aims to develop in them the basic skills, academic and non-academic as well as prepare them for technical and vocational training, "the ministry said .
During the first year Prevok, adequate preparation will be given to the child, allowing him, if he wishes to take part in the CPE exams in 2013. If he succeeds, his parents will have the choice to admit the Form I in 2014 in the mainstream sector or continue in the prevocational sector.

In cases where parents choose the prevocational sector, the name of the school where he will be allowed will be communicated later. Note that on average 33% of students participating in CPE fail each year.
