Hungary - Dual training is no panacea, but an important component in future university graduates gaining real marketable knowledge during their studies, according to Dr László Ábrahám, managing director of NI Hungary Kft., president of the association Együtt a Jövő Mérnökeiért Szövetség (EJMSZ, Together for the Engineers of the Future).

Ábrahám believes that more effort will be needed on the part of both the universities and enterprises so that this practice oriented form of training actually complies with the continuously changing expectations of the industry, and also so that students are provided with up-to-date and useful skills.

The best for enterprises and students alike would be if the dual-training system was to become more flexible. The sharing of knowledge varies from one profession to the other. The expectations of the chemical industry are different from those of the automobile sector. And this must be taken into account to achieve the goal of experts, with usable knowledge and university degrees entering the market in Hungary.

How can dual training be realised?

All this means that the professional expectations of companies and the training opportunities at institutes of higher education must be harmonised. The ultimate consideration to be observed on both sides is to increase the number of places providing dual training and to expand the scope of students involved in dual training. This can be achieved by harmonising processes.

The refinement of administrative rules could also provide incentives to companies to receive more students opting for dual training. The number of companies joining this system can be increased significantly by employing methods such as providing tax benefits or simplifying registration obligations, amongst others.

Educational institutions and companies must work together

Furthermore, gradual migration to experience based training would provide real initial momentum to strengthen interest in various specialties, professions and scientific areas as well as to restore the renown of the university training of engineers. However, appropriate career orientation is not only the responsibility of education stakeholders – it is important that dual training centres are established locally on a regional level, where experts of companies and training institutions can work together on providing relevant professional knowledge and a vision to an increased number of students through continued training, induction training, and other activities aimed at knowledge sharing. Additionally, establishing a direct relationship between future employees and employers is also essential.
