SZAMALK Szakkozepiskola is an Hungarian school that provided ICT-related training programs from 20 years. Its training program offer has been growing ever since, which means today its provides - besides IT vocations – training programs in the field of the media, arts, economics as well as pedagogy and public transport (flight attendant courses). Since 2006 our school has been the member institution of “CISCO Academy”, so our students can attend two different CISCO courses (IT Essentials and CCNA) – this way they can take international exams in our school as well. 1200 students participate in the different training programs preparing for the labour market by acquiring up-dated competences.
The school has worked in many international projects and the developments are currently being performed.
Why is the Label of e-Excellence important for your school ?
"Our school has won a special rank among the vocational educational institutions in Hungary not only with the help of its long traditions and experience in ICT education but with its activities in the field of methodology innovation. For the past 10 years the school has been involved in several experimental and innovation transfer projects, whose results have been used in the teaching process as well."
"Our school is innovative and experimental; we would like everything to be excellent. It is important for us to issue an international certificate as the only institution in Hungary. It is important that our students can find a job in other countries of Europe and that not only their certificates, but also their competences would be acknowledged. We would like our students to be able to benefit from their skills in an international level as well by providing IT English lessons. We would like to try out two pilot training courses to prove that the described job profiles meet the needs of the employers here in Hungary."
