In the KOF Factbook Education System South Korea, we will describe the vocational system of South Korea in general and in particular refer to factors, which are crucial for the functioning of the system. Among others, these comprise the regulatory framework and the governance of the VPET system, specifying the actors that are involved and which competencies and duties they have. Further, the curriculum development and the actors involved in this process, as well as the financing of the system, etc. The Factbook is structured as follows. We will refer to the South Korean economy, labor market, and political system in the first part of this Factbook. The second part is dedicated to the description of the entire formal education system. The vocational part of the South Korean education system will be explained in the third part. And finally, the last section gives a perspective about the set of reforms the South Korean education system went through in the past and will face in the future.
