As is done every year in accordance with the requirements of the Act on the Educational Law, the Minister of National Education has defined the basic directions of the national education policy to be implemented in the coming school year.

Among the six indicated directions, one point is especially dedicated to vocational education and training: developing a programme offer in vocational education and implementing the new core curricula of vocational education. The remaining priorities apply to all types of schools and educational facilities.
