This study was conducted for the first time in Vocational Educationand Training (VET) institutions. The aim of the research is to establish what are the health-related knowledge and behaviors among VET girls and boys, as well as the life skills that can help them find employment. The study was conducted among students aged 15-19 from 4 centres of excellence, 7 colleges and 9 vocational schools, a total of 20 VET institutions. The study assessed the level of knowledge, attitudes and practices of 923 students related to their health and life skills. Girls accounted for 63% of respondents, and boys - 37%, given the fact that some educational institutions enrolled in the assessment have mostly girls as enrolled students. This proportion did not influence the study results and corresponds to the research sample criteria.
