This short description contributes to better understanding vocational education and training (VET) in Croatia by providing insights into its main features and highlighting system developments and current challenges in recent years.

Croatia has a strong VET tradition; participation at upper secondary level is one of the highest in the EU. The share of early leaving from education and training is the lowest in the EU. Facilitating adult learning remains a major challenge as participation is very low.

The Croatian presidency of the Council of the EU in the first half of 2020 focuses on teachers and trainers who are at the heart of all developmental and reform processes, as promoters and enablers of the new skills needed for the future. Putting words into action, Croatia recently improved many factors in teacher status and has built a system that recognises and rewards excellence in teaching.
