Upcoming publication: Reform of vocational education

The audit assesses the impacts of the reform of vocational education on the operations of vocational institutions, and whether the implementation of the reform supports the employability of students and the structural competitiveness of Finland. The audit also aims to ensure that central government funding is allocated correctly based on the performance data on education. The audit provides Parliament and the Ministry of Education and Culture with independent information on the implementation of the reform and the development needs. Parliament has also required that the reform be monitored (EV 86/2017 vp), and the audit contributes to meeting this need for monitoring information.
