Hungary finished 6th in the international competition.

Hungarian young professionals won four gold, one silver, one bronze and six “excellence” medals in Graz at the European championship for professions, EuroSkills Graz 2021. The Hungarian national team started in 21 professions with 26 competitors. 400 competitors came from 19 countries and competed in 38 professions.

László Parragh, President of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that Hungarian young professionals were better than ever in the European Championships, proven by the four gold, one silver, one bronze and six “excellence” they took home.

These results also show that the transformation of Hungarian vocational education is on the right track. The energy spent on vocational training is starting to pay off, which can also be seen in the investments, as investments in Hungary are growing significantly, he added.

The chamber’s efforts to transform vocational training have yielded results, and this will have to be transposed to the level of everyday life in the school system, Parragh said
