Young people who have left public education will have access to a trade via so-called "workshop schools", through a flexible form of training, reports business daily Világgazdaság.
The pilot program launched by the Ministry for Innovation and Technology will involve 117 people this school year, said Deputy State Secretary for Vocational Training Gáborné Pölöskei. The new type of training is available in nine vocational training institutions and with the support of two church organizations.
The "workshop' school" places great emphasis on practice-oriented education, the acquisition of the sub-profession takes place with a master in the school workshop or in working conditions, in groups of one to five people.
They will train carpenters, shopkeepers, cashiers, waiters and room painters. Upon graduating from school, students will receive a professional certificate, which can open the door to further work and training.
