Unemployment among youth is a major national concern in Ukraine, where about 20% of youth are out of job. The main problem in school to work transition is imperfect coordination between the education system and the labour market. The quality of the vocational training system in Ukraine does not meet international standards. The fast-growing private sector is facing a shortage of skilled labour, while it must compete on the European market and comply with European standards.
