Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk chaired a weekly meeting on veterans’ policy. The meeting focused on the government’s project for vocational training of combatants and individuals with war-related disabilities.  

Individuals have the opportunity to participate in advanced training courses, and retraining programs, and receive education vouchers.

The participants reviewed how information is shared with veterans and combatants about this opportunity. They discussed ways to improve dissemination.

The information campaign launched in January has significantly increased the number of combatants studying at vocational education centers.

116 people have started training in UAV piloting programs, and 87 combatants have chosen the entrepreneurship program to start their businesses.

Almost 200 people are receiving psychological assistance programs to help them adjust to civilian life and find employment.

The State Employment Service currently operates eight fully operational vocational education centers in the following regions: Dnipropetrovs’k, Poltava, Kharkiv, Odesa, Lviv, Rivne, Sumy, and Ivano-Frankivsk.

The duration of training ranges from 3 to 6 months, depending on the profession and qualification level. Institutions are prepared to offer distance learning if needed.

The State Employment Center website provides a list of 95 licensed professions and 365 educational programs for advanced training. You can find the full list of professions on their website.
