This was discussed at an interdepartmental meeting on employment and vocational training for IDPs by Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk.

Representatives of the Ministry of Reintegration, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Social Policy, the State Employment Service, regional military administrations, and other agencies and organizations attended the event.

According to the State Employment Service, the number of IDPs willing to participate in the education voucher program has increased. Since June 1, IDPs have submitted 1353 applications, significantly more than since the beginning of the year. The possibility of applying for a voucher online has helped to improve the statistics on IDPs.

Currently, the professions and specialties that people choose to study are dominated by the labor sector. Regarding voucher types, the most in-demand occupations are nursing, cooking, psychology, driver, social work, electric and gas welding, security, and tractor driver.

A survey of program participants showed that the quality of service provided by the Employment Service is highly valued, with an average of two days to process a voucher application.

The State Employment Service assured that the tuition voucher program is fully funded and will continue to operate without restrictions.
