Vocational education and training (VET) in Poland has three governance levels: national (ministries), regional (school superintendents, mainly in pedagogical supervision) and county (governing schools).

The Ministry of National Education is in charge of VET policy at secondary level, supported by other ministries responsible for particular occupations. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education is responsible for higher VET.

Social partners advise policy-makers on necessary changes in VET.

Since September 2017 the Polish education system has been undergoing substantial restructuring, which will be finalised in the 2022/23 school year.
