The purpose of the study is to analyse the importance of standardisation and certification in the context of vocational education, as well as to study the dynamics and main challenges facing the Ukrainian vocational education system. To achieve the aim of the article, theoretical methods of cognition were used, in particular, methods of analysis, synthesis, deduction, content analysis, induction, and comparison. The results demonstrate that further development of vocational education in Ukraine is impossible without systemic changes in the legislation governing the educational sector and other important regulatory documents, such as the National Qualifications Framework, the classification of professions, as well as documentation from the National Qualifications Agency, etc. Overcoming problems in this area, such as clarifying professional areas and making them compliant with modern requirements, as well as eliminating outdated professions that do not meet modern technologies and processes, are important for adapting educational documents and standards to the requirements of the modern world. In the process of developing new regulations in the field of vocational education, it is important to take into account existing international and European standards, which will allow Ukraine's European integration potential to be taken into account. A flexible response to changes in the labour market is also an important element of the reform. The conclusions note that harmonisation with European educational systems and finding resources for its implementation remains an important task, even in difficult conditions, including the military aggression of the Kremlin regime.
