An important trend in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system in the Netherlands is the design of continuous learning pathways enclosing more than one school type level. These continuous learning pathways are characterized by different design formats. In this study, the relations between these design formats and student performance and satisfaction were examined. Five coordinators and 161 students of five so-called Green Lycea (GL) in the life sciences domain, in which the elements of the two successive educational levels (vmbo and mbo) were either separated or interwoven, participated. The conclusion can be drawn that this group of students benefits most from continuous learning pathways in which integration of elements of successive educational levels is realized.
