More Hungarians participate in dual education
The number of students entering dual education in Hungary has grown by 53,000 lately, László Odrobina, deputy state secretary for vocational training and adult education, was reported as saying Wednesday. Dual education combines apprenticeships in a company and vocational education at a vocational school in one course.
Legislation approved by the Hungarian Parliament last year has made the system more accessible, Odrobina said during an event organized by the German-Hungarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DUIHK), Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
The total number of Hungarians participating in vocational programs in upper secondary school came to about 118,000 in the 2013/2014 academic year, about one-quarter of all students in those grade levels, data from the Central Statistical Office (KSH) show, according to MTI.
