As one of the fastest growing economies of Europe, Lithuania considers investment in human resources paramount. This requires making IVET more attractive to young people and, despite high educational attainment levels, encouraging more adults to develop their skills further. Improved vocational guidance, more professional development opportunities for VET teachers and more attention to quality assurance are some of the current priorities. Although mainly school-based, IVET includes some forms of work-based learning. Apprenticeship-type training exists but is not yet very strong. The intention to include non-formally acquired qualifications in the Lithuanian qualifications framework and use of European structural Fund support are expected to help strengthen work-based learning routes.
