To the Process of Set-up, Current Situation, and the Further Development of Higher Vocational Colleges Prospects. Authors are focused on the process of setup, development, current situation, and future prospects of higher vocational colleges in the Czech Republic. The short period of their existence has brought many questions about the very purpose of this entirely new type of institution, their position within the education system, quantity as well as quality of their work. Authors have been trying to answer some of these questions. The paper is based on a research project carried out by the authors in 1998.
