Budapest, April 7 (MTI) – Hungary’s economy ministry has signed a cooperation agreement on training with the German-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
State secretary for Labour Sandor Czomba signed the agreement with Dale A Martin, the head of the chamber, in Budapest on Tuesday.
The German-Hungarian Chamber had planned to modernise training already 20 years ago at its founding, Martin said. It can draw on the experiences on Germany’s dual vocational training system, which is well known all over the world.
Czomba added that the dual training system was launched in Hungary in 2012 with 37,000 students which by now has risen to 50,000 and will be boosted to 70,000 by the end of 2018. These students study based on student contracts which offer them apprenticeships with companies, he said.
