Vocational or university education? The core question discussed at the UniVET Project seminar

Over 40 persons participated in an experts’ seminar entitled „Vocational or university education? Factors influencing the decision of young people to choose a particular educational path” organised as part of the international UniVet Project.

What makes young people decide to study at university? Which factors influence the decision to choose training in a sector? Why are young people prematurely quitting school or changing their chosen education path? Which character traits influence the choice of a career? – these are among the questions that a group of experts attempted to answer, among whom were employees of the Educational Research Institute, Ministry of National Education, Foundation for the Development of the Education System, Voivodship Labour Office, Warsaw City Hall, career advisors and people interested in the development of vocational education in Poland.

The meeting was also an opportunity to discuss the social determinants of the functioning of sectoral schools. Also discussed was the need for research in this area, which is also among the aims of UniVET


The UniVET Project seeks to find an answer to the question of why students choose university education, even though the choice of vocational education would be more appropriate given their situation. The project will also support young people who are dissatisfied with their chosen educational path and are thinking about quitting school. The project is scheduled to conclude at the end of 2020.
