Hungary is supporting foreign language skills and IT training to boost employability and competitiveness

Language training is high on the agenda in Hungary where a new nationwide programme supporting lifelong learning has been launched. Aiming to improve people’s employability and make the economy more competitive, the programme is offering training in foreign languages and IT skills to some 100 000 individuals at 300 training institutions nationwide. Priority is given to unemployed mothers, Roma people and disadvantaged job-seekers. The HUF 12.5 billion (EUR 44 million) programme is being co-funded by the ESF.
