Introduction The education systems within the contemporary post-industrial society undergo systemic reforms and a constant, on-going change. In order to successfully implement the education reforms, it is important to not only apply systematic approach, i.e. understanding, the education systems elements of which change, aiming at the objectives of the reform, is a must, but also the internal and external harmony of these changes. The systems-oriented strategy and pro-activities management by theorising the education practice provide conditions to vision the change tendencies at all levels of environment. The implementation of the education reform approaches includes modelling of the training process, search for the ways to perfect it, forecast of objectives, formulation of tasks, their solution within real training situations, i.e. to carry out the education reform “from the grassroots” and to guarantee the quality of education services. The systems-oriented strategy and pro-activities management practice in theorizing context is based on the following methodological approaches: • scientific research as concept as scientific instrument of policy impact and systematic approach towards research object (Laužackas 1999), who has contributed in outlining the systemsoriented parameters of political school change concept, analytical model, empirical research theoretical model as well as parameters of repeated character of research; • the education systems management aspects (Targamadzė, 1996, 2001), the education management and change concept (Želvys, 1999), which enabled to ground the systemic approach towards school as an institution and formulate schools the systems-oriented policy concept; • systemically based essence of lifelong learning (Teresevičienė, 2001), vocational training, continuous research of training process (Laužackas, 1999), enabling to formulate the theoretical preconditions of systems-oriented school change policy, that provided the enforcement of structural
pattern of schools system as training bodies.
