Collaboration with High Schools
In the course of cooperation conducted with several vocational and secondary schools IT Services Hungary promotes the teaching of practice-oriented IT skills to provide a pool of new recruits with professional training. As a result, 2-year National Qualification Register (OKJ) IT courses have been launched in two secondary schools in Debrecen, with the backing of IT Services Hungary. The courses aimed at those who have passed their school-leaving exams have been put together in cooperation with ITSH, with the aim of teaching students a popular and marketable profession, thereby increasing their chances of finding work.
The basic idea behind the tie up between ITSH and secondary school students is for secondary school teaching to give young people a marketable, competitive profession. The aim is to develop and support teaching in line with the requirements of IT Services Hungary Kft., thereby reinforcing the labour market, providing the company with a pool of trained recruits, and increasing the recruitment opportunities for the company.
