Combining education with business is usually associated with advanced technologies, innovation and academicworld. However, even though the efforts are considerable, the results of such collaborations are dissatisfying, especially in CEE countries, including Poland. The importance of the level of cooperation of vocational education institutions with commercial companies is frequently forgotten in terms of business education collaboration, which, in the case of Poland, had been perfect until the transformation of the political system. The situation changed after the transformation in 1989, when vocational education in Poland started to be marginalised. Nowadays, we witness the process of reconstructing and redeveloping Polish vocational education that must naturally cooperate with business. The article presents initiatives undertaken by the Polish government aiming at restoring Polish vocational education. Most of these measures are co-financed by the European Union. Moreover, the article demonstrates the advantages and challenges of the system model created by one of the greatest Polish training companies, Syntea. The model consists in integrating vocational education with companies by supporting teaching process, validating skills by independent VCC certification as well as defining competence needs specified by businessmen.
