The new schools are being set up as part of the governmentʼs effort to improve vocational training and increase the number of trained workers, Varga reportedly said.
Hungary is facing a shortage of skilled labor, as unemployment continues to drop. Tomorrows release of new unemployment figures could see the rate go below 5%, and employers are urging better vocational training.
