Project Background in Hungary

Weak points in the field of LLL and key competencies

  • Lowest level of participation in adult education compared to the EU-27, it is particularly a problem among the population with low level of education, elderly and unemployed

  • Imbalanced situation regarding the various levels of education and in regional aspects, lack of AE infrastructure

  • The level of basic skills of low educational attainment is deeply under the EU average (ALL)

  • Lack of public resources, low level of participation of the business sector and private individuals in financing the costs of LLL

  • Too much focus on formal qualification and accreditations, lack of acknowledgement of non-formal and informal learning
