Vocational education and training (VET) has always represented a fundamental part of the Czech education system. Benefiting from a long tradition of quality, it has developed intensively over recent decades. In the past five years curricula have been reformed and modernised.

The main body responsible for initial VET (IVET) is the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.

Most VET schools are public and founded by regions.

IVET is school-based, with a large proportion of practical training (at schools, in workshops, practical training centres, and authorised companies) and/or work placements.

Representatives of employers are involved in sector skill councils and field groups that set occupational and qualification standards.
