What can one improve in vocational secondary education?


A new assessment of vocational secondary education has been added to the range of audit reports of the State Audit Office, which includes two audit reports or audits in the scope of two sectors, that is, the Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Culture. Our auditors have assessed the development of vocational secondary schools subordinate to those two ministries at a time when one has invested significant state budget funds and the EU funds in this segment of education. Members of the Council of the State Audit Office Inese Kalvāne and Inga Vilka, Heads of Sectors Sandra Zunde and Nataļja Mihailova, as well as State Auditor-Lawyer Ilze Ozoliņa will discuss the audit reports, the conclusions expressed in them, and future challenges for vocational secondary education.
