Ministry, teachers strike cooperation deal

Culture and Innovation Minister Janos Csak on Thursday signed a comprehensive cooperation agreement with Peter Horvath, head of the National Teachers' Corps.

At the signing ceremony, the minister said the achievements reached under the agreement could make a change for the whole nation. He said the teachers’ corps was “monitoring trends relevant for competitiveness both in Hungary and abroad” while his ministry was in charge of vocational training, and higher and adult education. He said the cooperation would pay special focus to young talent, and called for teachers’ cooperation to “find development opportunities” for them.

Csak said he trusted that the agreement would “serve the children and families” adding that it was “in their interest that we need skilled and committed teachers”.

Horvath said his organisation considered it a primary task to “help teachers with their work and mediate between them and the government”.

He urged that the achievements of programmes for disadvantaged children, vocational training developments and other schemes should be evaluated, adding that it was “especially important who will be teachers and how they will teach”.
