Additionally, 85 percent of those Slovaks polled said that vocational education and training contribute positively to the country's economy, the SITA newswire wrote about the poll. Slovak respondents were even more positive than the EU average of 83 percent.
The Eurobarometer survey also found that 79 percent of the Slovak respondents believe vocational education and training play a role in curbing unemployment. Seventy percent of the respondents agreed that schools and labour offices provide sufficient consultations to young people regarding education and jobs.
