Swedish vocational education and training (VET) includes programmes and study pathways within upper secondary education and non-academic and academic tertiary education.

The Ministry of Education and Research is responsible for most education; this includes upper secondary schools, adult education, and higher vocational education for VET.

The Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education approves providers and government grants for higher vocational programmes.

Many other actors provide both initial and continuing VET.
