Financing vocational education and training in the EU new Member States and candidate countries

The Maastricht Communiqu (December 2004) insisted on the need to invest in vocational education and training (VET), particularly with the aim of  focusing on the image and attractiveness of the vocational route, in order to increase participation in VET.

Following this approach, the ETF analysed the forms of investment in education and training in several countries, and their impact on the systems.

The report has just been published with the title "Financing vocational education and training in the EU new Member States and candidate countries" This report provides an overview of the financing of vocational education and training in seven EU new Member States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Cyprus) and four candidate countries (Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and, to a lesser extent, Croatia). Priorities and trends in education and training funding are analysed and the main issues and challenges highlighted.
