Reform perspectives for the Ukrainian VET System – a critical analysis

Deissinger, Thomas; Melnyk, Oksana

Marhuenda-Fluixá, Fernando; Chisvert-Tarazona, María José

The contribution focuses on current reforms of the Ukrainian VET system, mainly on decentralization and the “import” of a dual system, as well as on the hindrances for successful implementation of these reforms. The context hereby is neoliberalism, which has influenced Ukraine generally, including the development of vocational education, and modernisation theory, which explains the involvement of international organisations in the VET reforms and liberal attempts of the Ukrainian government. The theoretical findings suggests that although Ukraine has a potential to improve its skill formation system, activities so far seem fragmentary and isolated, and they apparently do not take into account the complex environment in which they are meant to function.
