The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine today, February 4, was supported in the first reading and in General bill No. 3831-2 «On amendments to the Budget code of Ukraine regarding the funding of vocational education». The decision was supported by 305 deputies.

«In most cities of regional importance do not have the required financial resources for financing such institutions. According to the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine do not provide funding for the 78 institutions of vocational education in 33 cities in 14 regions. The transfer of such institutions to the level of cities of regional value violates the subsidiarity principle, limited to the right to accessibility of technical and vocational education persons», — is told in the explanatory note.

The purpose of the document is the regulation of the conditions of financing labor force training in vocational schools.

In particular, the bill proposes to resolve the issue regarding the allocation of expenditure responsibilities for funding of vocational education between regional budgets and budgets of cities that are regional centers.

It is expected that funding of such institutions will be done at the expense of the regional budget and from budgets of cities that are regional centers, as well as by educational subventions from the state budget.

It is emphasized that temporarily introduces a subsidy to support training of workers in vocational and other educational institutions from the state budget to local budgets.

So, the implementation of the changes in Budget code will not require additional expenditures from the State budget of Ukraine, as its implementation will be funded through the reallocation of funds between budget programs.

Earlier, the head of the Transcarpathian regional state administration Gennady Moskal filed a lawsuit against the Mukacheve city Council, which refuses to Fund vocational schools.
