This short description contributes to a better understanding of vocational education and training (VET) in Latvia by providing an insight into its main features and by highlighting VET policy developments and current challenges.

Recent VET initiatives and reforms focus on strengthening cooperation between stakeholders, developing sectoral qualifications, and raising efficiency and quality of vocational education. The VET provider network is being optimised to respond to demographic trends and shrinking financial resources. At the same time, several policy measures aim to make VET more attractive, for instance by increasing support for learners and labour market relevance through stronger focus on new forms of work-based learning.
