Back to Overview

As there is no VET research strategy in this country, all topics related to the Vocational education development programme 2003-2005 are considered as important. In 2004 VET research covered only the following topics: Quality development of VET teachers and progress in VET development in line with economic changes in the country. 

In 2005 the situation changed significantly, leading to more completed investigations:

  • a group of research themes dealing with HRD in mechanical engineering and metalworking industries of Latvia (4);
  • a group of research themes dealing with HRD in some Latvian regions (2);
  • a group of research themes dealing with problems of socially vulnerable groups (2).
The main groups of continuing research projects, supported by the Latvian Council of Science, cover the following themes: 
  • social process and quality of education, education reforms in Europe (3)
  • professional competences of teachers, teacher training (1)
  • labour market and economic development (2).
