The innovation and technology ministry signed a partnership agreement with Siemens Hungary on a four-year pilot programme that aims to reform dual education, at a ceremony in Budapest in Monday.
The programme running between 2018 and 2022 will upgrade the current scheme’s entry rules, training content, student contracts and system of exams, and the further training of teachers, IT Minister László Palkovics said.
The programme will cover 40 schools with 6,400 students and adults, 400 teachers and exam board members, he said.
The experiences gained from the programme will be considered in reforming the current Hungarian regulations on vocational training, the minister added.
Dale A. Martin, Siemens Hungary’s Presient and CEO, said industrial development requires a new type of knowledge and the company is proud to be a leader in dual training in Hungary’s engineering sector.
