Keywords:Business, Vocational Education, Employment Services
One of the main goals of vocational education is, on the one hand, to increase the knowledge capital of jobseekers and, on the other, to ensure supply for professions in the employment market. In conditions of high unemployment, it is especially important to support this direction in order to facilitate the increase of access to highly qualified specialists tailored to the requirements of the labour market by focusing on vocational training. In the field of vocational education, in order to represent the interests of
the private sector and improve services related to vocational education, we conducted qualitative research and ran focus groups in the tourism sector. The study involved the private and public sectors, experts in the field, vocational education institutions, sectoral associations, and others. As part of the study, we compiled a list of key activities that respondents considered promote and stimulate vocational education in the tourism sector. The main employment motivators and incentive mechanisms were identified in the research process. The paper presents conclusions and recommendations on effective coordination of vocational education, business and government employment services to help alleviate problems in the sector. Measures to be taken include programme updates, modification / restoration of canceled programmes, intensive involvement of the private sector in the teaching-learning process, increasing the awareness and popularity of vocational education in general, and more. The research process highlighted the need to implement a number of measures to address the existing challenges, which will help to encourage and stimulate vocational education in the tourism sector
