Summary/Abstract: The development of vocational education is one of the most important goals of The European Union, but it is regulated differently according to country. The funding systems for VET operate in different ways, being adjusted in line with the character of each country – their society, national economy, education system and traditions. Thus it will be difficult for one to move over to another funding system, though it is possible to learn about new elements from other countries. This study indicates how vocational education is financed in E.U. countries and – via examples taken from some of them – sees what roles the several actors (governments, local authorities, firms) can play in the funding of vocational education.
