Dual education: connecting education and the labor market





In this study, we review the situation of dual education in Hungary, both in vocational education and higher education. In vocational training, the Vocational Training Act 2019 has brought significant changes, with the emphasized aim of bringing the world of trainers and the world of work closer together so that training can increasingly meet the economic challenges of the 21st century. Dual training has been operating in higher education since 2015, during which time both partner companies and universities have accumulated a remarkable amount of experience. The aim is to involve as many industry players as possible in dual training, both in vocational training and in higher education. Although the two types of training differ in many respects, but the methodology of dual training, and the main criteria are similar, so we find it interesting to compare the parallels and experiences for each actor. Many companies have students in both secondary and tertiary dual training, and mainly the same staff member or area is responsible for organizing their education. In addition to reviewing the purpose and benefits of dual training, the study aims to share first-hand information from practice and training sites.
