Two vocational qualifications may be obtained free of charge within the formal school system in Hungary: practical implementation

    On 27 May 2015, the Hungarian Parliament adopted Act LXVI of 2015 amending Act CLXXXVII of 2011 on Vocational Training, Act LXXVII of 2013 on Adult Training and some other acts on related subjects. The purpose of the new act was to ensure compliance with Directive 2006/123/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of 12 December 2006 on services in the internal market.

    The act entered into force on 12 June 2015 and  enables citizens in Hungary to obtain not only the first but the  second qualification within the formal school system free of charge and we wish to give an overview of its implementation during the past two years.


    In the framework of the Danube Transnational Programme, the Budapest Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) takes part in the implementation of three projects from 2017 onwards. Out of these, the one that BCCI initiated as the Lead Partner is called “Learning by Doing - Targeted Capacity Building of VET Partnerships in the Danube Region for the Effective Modernisation of VET Systems”, which aims to develop Vocational Education and Training (VET) systems and to introduce an effective and modernised dual VET system. This would be achieved by increasing the capacity of institutional actors defining VET systems in the Danube Region, and through reinforcing national and transnational partnerships.
