Summary/Abstract: The study describes the changes in the initial VET-school system after the political turnaround of 1989-1990. The story fits in a 3-phase picture. The first phase lasted more than a decade following the economic collapse and can be characterized by a restructuring of maintenance and programme provision. By the early 2000s the system had found an equilibrium. The second phase, from 2005, saw the building up of the system of Regional Integrated VET Centres – while the third one oversaw a liquidating of these and the establishing of a system of the so-called (quite new) VET Centres. The story of this third phase has just started, however. Although the institutional framework meets the requirements of an effective and high-quality VET system, some other policy innovations might present themselves as obstacles here.
