National Observatory of Poland, Warsaw.
This report on vocational education and training (VET) in Poland has nine chapters. Chapter 1 presents the socioeconomic situation; explains reasons for different rates of development in particular regions; and presents trends in job creation and rise and fall in unemployment. Chapter 2 deals with changes in the VET field in these areas: VET's organizational structure; overall level of education; and access to learning institutions in urban and rural areas resulting from reforms at national, regional, and local levels. It defines the relationship between VET and the labor market and identifies and describes elements, the presence or absence of which are indicative of the extent to which VET is adjusted to the labor market. Chapter 3 deals with matters related to development of labor resources against the background of opportunities that continuing education provides. Chapter 4 presents Polish research on the labor market and VET. Chapters 5 and 6 provide data on the government and non-governmental bodies, institutions, and organizations responsible for VET. Chapter 7 addresses financing VET in a market economy environment. Chapter 8 examines the role and importance of foreign assistance in reforming the VET. Chapter 9 deals with the need for and obstacles to reform in the Polish VET system. Appendixes include a list of abbreviations, 80-item bibliography, and diagrams of the current and new education and training system. (YLB)
