The European Training Foundation has been working with Ukraine for many years as one of its priority countries. We have been supporting our Ukrainian partners in reforming their education and training system, focusing on topics such as qualifications, the future of skills in key economic sectors, and governance arrangements to modernise the system and bring it closer to the European Union. We have invested in teacher training, career guidance, vocational excellence as well as green, digital and entrepreneurial key competences. We have supported the modernisation of labour market information systems through the make-it-match network and big data analysis of the labour market.

We are continuing our work as circumstances allow, in close cooperation with our partners and the European Union.

The EU’s first regional programme supporting education reforms and skills in the Eastern Partnership region was formally launched in Turin in May 2024. This EUR 2.5 million, three-year (2024–26) programme – to be implemented by the ETF – aims to enhance the efficiency, quality, equity, equality and relevance of education systems in five countries of the region, including Ukraine. 

Together with the European Union and its Member States, we express our full solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people and condemn in the strongest possible terms Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression, which grossly violates international law and the UN Charter, and undermines international security and stability.
