Comments The scholarship awarding system established in the country is not fully regulated in the laws and regulations, as it does not provide for a clear procedure of awarding scholarships and allows different scholarships to be awarded to the VET learners in identical and comparable conditions. The reason for the different approach is the shortcomings of the external regulatory framework, including the fact that the Education Law does not define the purpose of awarding scholarships clearly. E.g. it can be awarded both as a motivation for improving one’s progress and social support for learners and used as a tool for facilitating attractiveness and accessibility of vocational education and training and reducing the number of drop-outs and non-graduates. Therefore, the aim of the audit was to assure whether the scholarship awarding system for the VET learners provides a single and transparent calculation of the funding of scholarships in conformity with the laws and regulations.
