The education of artists and experts takes place within the framework of the secondary and higher education institutions in the country, that fall within the departmental competence of the Ministry of Education and Science. The Ministry of Culture does not have the competence to participate in the preparation of the curricula and in the establishment of the network of educational institutions. However, within the framework of inter-departmental co-operation, it can influence educational policy, from the point of view of culture.
On the other hand, cultural education is one of the key points of the National Strategy for Cultural Development 2018-2022. It projects closer cooperation and coordination between the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education and Science on the student quotas for certain important culture study programmes, specific student programmes for deficit professions (for example studies on conservation and restoration) in the cultural field etc.
Some of the main measures are:
- Cultural programmes and activities in the primary and secondary education;
- New programmes in the higher education for protection of cultural heritage;
- Establishment of an institute for cultural politics and development
- Training courses for the highly educated staff in the museums, libraries and other institutions for protection of cultural heritage, etc.
