Introduction. Modern conditions of low efficiency of the vocational education system in Ukraine highlight the need to justify and implement new more modern and effective forms of cooperation between government, business, and vocational education to meet common interests and needs along with the development of educational services and the national economy in general. The article is devoted to the problems of development of vocational education in Ukraine, in the part of regional policy with the use of tools and measures of collective bargaining approach to management. The necessity of improving the institutional support of the management of the development of vocational education institutions in Ukraine is substantiated.

Purpose. The purpose of the research is to substantiate the measures to managing the development of vocational education by collective bargaining approach in the region.

Results. An analysis of the draft Regulation on Supervisory Boards at Vocational Education Institutions of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine has been carried out. The shortcomings and directions of improving the regulatory and legal support for the functioning of supervisory boards are identified. The results of the analysis of foreign experience on the collective-agreement approach to the management of the development of vocational education are highlighted. The strategic stages of development of the vocational education system in Ukraine are determined.

Conclusions. Further development of the vocational education system in Ukraine and its institutions is closely correlated with the introduction of various forms of collective bargaining of all individuals interested in increasing the quality of the system and training highly qualified professionals, including maintaining them in Ukraine (substituting external migration), which will contribute to the formation and development of the human resources. One of the most promising forms of collective bargaining is the creation of supervisory boards at vocational education institutions as collegial consultative and advisory management bodies to participate in solving strategic tasks of educational institutions.

Keywords: vocational education, institutional support of management, supervisory boards, tools of collective regulation, regional development.
