The quality of VET is not only a priority topic for the State Vocational Education Institute, but also an essential part of education and social development. Because the quality of VET affects young students as well as all adults in the process of reskilling or upskilling. The link between the labor market and quality VET is one of the most important factors for the economic development of the whole society.

“Quality assurance has many aspects and requires increased efforts from school management, as well as from teachers and other employees themselves. However, I am convinced that this effort translates into a better, more modern, and attractive offer for pupils, increasing its responsiveness to the current needs in the economy and also creating a healthy competitive environment.” Slavomir Partila, PNDr., State Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Slovak Republic.


Despite the Easter holidays, April 2023 was filled with a number of events, including multi-day events, which we deliberately organized outside Bratislava. We started with events in Trnava, continued to Brno, Trenčianske Teplice, and then through the online space to Košice.

  1. Peer review evaluation visit to SPŠ dopravná in Trnava, 3-4 April 2023
  2. Study visit in Brno, 13-14 April 2023
  3. Training of peer reviewers in Trenčianske Teplice, 17-18 April 2023
  4. Online training “How to use the potential of LinkedIn”, 20 April 2023
  5. Building a culture of quality – workshop in Košice, 26 April 2023
  6. Conference “Quality of vocational education – an imperative for the future“, 27 April 2023


We also started the tradition of awarding the quality of VET last year. Through the National VET Quality Award we want to increase the prestige of VET in Slovakia, strengthen the motivation of teaching and non-teaching staff, to make visible their efforts, activities, and results, which they achieve a high level in ensuring the quality of VET.

Also this year, secondary vocational schools had the opportunity to boast good practice and exceptional results or approaches in quality assurance of VET. Schools could nominate or self-nominate themselves for the four categories of the National VET Quality Award 2023:

  • Digital and green skills as a VET priority
  • Professional staff development
  • Promoting a lifelong approach in VET
  • Outstanding personality in VET quality assurance

The awarding of this year’s winners was the icing on the cake of the VET Quality of vocational education – an imperative for the future, which took place on 27 April 2023 in Košice. Feel free to watch the videos about the winning schools.
