In this paper, an application in developing a course for secondary vocational education settings in a modular manner is discussed and a number of conclusions are drawn from the process. The application was partly intentional and partly the result of circumstances, as it was realized, being a part of the redesign process of the specialties offered within the sector of Informatics of Vocational Lyceums (upper-secondary education), the schools that offer initial vocational education in Greece. Using modular design is applicable to secondary vocational education courses. It allows for adaptability, reusability and a variety of approaches within a competence-based syllabus. It is also suggested that more courses could benefit from a modular structure, definitely including other advanced laboratorial courses, but possibly even introductory ones.
