Basic information about mobility of apprentices in Hungary
Who is concerned?
Schools may – and they often do - recognise vocational practice taken abroad within the framework of the Leonardo programme as mandatory practice at home. The Europass mobility certificate is used most often in VET mobility projects: in 2010 1745 certificates were issued compared with 972 in the previous year, most in connection with Leonardo mobility projects.
How is mobility organized?
Within the framework of the ’HATÁRTALANUL’ (Without borders!) programme of the Apáczai Public Foundation Hungarian VET schools organise field trips and study visits to Hungarian minority VET schools abroad, in Romania, Slovakia, Serbia and Ukraine.
