Trade education low in Hungary
Hungary is among the countries with the lowest share of upper secondary school pupils enrolled in vocational education, EU statistical body Eurostat says.
At 23%, Hungary was only ahead of Cyprus (17%) and Ireland (10%) in 2017, the year the latest figures are based on. The highest share of upper secondary school age pupils enrolled in vocational education was recorded in regional peer the Czech Republic and in Finland (both 72%).
