The state of vocational education and training (VET) in Ukraine was examined. The study focused on the following topics: Ukraine's socioeconomic conditions; Ukraine's labor market; general VET policy and legislation; and Ukraine's VET system. Selected findings were as follows: (1) although Ukraine's socioeconomic situation continues to be unstable, encouraging signs are emerging; (2) crises in Ukraine's economy and social and public life have slowed the pace and character of reforms in Ukraine's entire educational system, especially in its VET system. The following actions have been deemed critical: (1) improve the network of VET institutions; (2) open new types of training institutions, integrate practitioners, and formulate new standards; (3) develop new curricula and train/retrain teaching staff; (4) introduce new vocational training for teachers and public materials related to today's occupations; (5) issue up-to-date course material and make modern educational and production technologies part of the practical teaching process; (6) strengthen ties between teaching institutions, employers, and other social partners; and (7) improve pay and social protection for individuals working in education. (The following items are appended: an diagram of Ukraine's education system; a table detailing the Ukraine National Education System; a discussion of bilateral and multilateral collaboration in VET; and a list of main organizations. The bibliography lists 35 references.) (MN)
