Administrative Legal Regulation of the Right to Implement Formal Vocational Education and Training (Anti-Corruption Aspect)

Vidmantas Jurgaitis, Violeta Kosmačaitė


During an economic crisis, increased competition in the market, declining manufacturing, and increased unemployment may encourage some entities to claim allocation of equipment and personnel for vocational education and training in an attempt to enter into or strengthen their position in the vocational education and training services market. They may use various means, including lobbying or even corrupt methods to acquire the right to provide such services and thus claim national budget funds or resources of the National Employment Fund. Formal vocational education and training may be exercised only with an appropriate license. The process of granting of these licenses should be regulated effectively. Procedures should be transparent, evaluation criteria should be well-defined, the indicators—measurable, and the evaluation—reliable and valid. The following issues were tackled in this study. Firstly, the authors analysed the anticorruption aspect of administrative legal regulation of the right to carry out formal vocational education and training. Secondly, we argued that the lack of ongoing anti-corruption evaluation of the administrative legal regulation and gaps in regulation constitute the preconditions for the rise of corruption. Thirdly, the study presents recommendations for the development of regulation and reducing of the risk of corruption.
