The government has identified a list of 19 professions of national importance - training for these professions will be carried out in vocational schools with state budget funds. This is stated in the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, which was adopted today, November 16, during a meeting of the Government.
"These professions are priorities for the development of the country's economy and training for them requires state support. Thanks to this decision, we will not only provide priority industries with skilled labor, but also substantially support vocational schools," - said Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Lilia Grinevich.
