The Federal Ministry of Education and Women's Affairs has competence for the entire educational system of general and vocational schools, from compulsory schooling until completion of secondary level 2 and for all University Colleges of Teacher Education (Pädagogische Hochschulen) in Austria. Adult education and life-long learning are also parts of its responsibilities.
