Hungary - Continuous development in Handler Nándor Vocational School
The Handler Nándor Vocational school has been involved in regular quality improvement activity since 2000. These activities include a definition of a quality policy, and the identification and regulation of the school’s processes. It conducts self-assessment on an annual basis and introduces new developments based on the outcomes of these assessments. An indicator system is included in the self-assessment process. This system is based on a set of links between TARGETS – TRAITS – RESULTS. This logical approach forms the foundation of the school’s quality assurance activity and ‘targets’ are connected to ‘results’ through the school’s self-assessment model.
Each year the school measures the needs and satisfaction of the partner organisations that provide practical training and supervise learners. Measures are used to gauge the satisfaction and needs of partner organisations, and the outcomes are used to define the objectives of work-based learning and produce an action plan. The school has integrated its quality assurance system into its operational arrangements. The indicators that are used to evaluate the action plans and the results from measuring partner organisations’ satisfaction are included in the overall assessment of the school’s performance.
Evaluation is also supported by comparing the school’s indicators with those at a national or sectoral level. This includes, for example, comparisons with the national assessment results (national assessment of basic competences, PISA survey etc.); the results from examinations for national qualifications and national professional competitions; employment indicators; the teacher to student ratio; utilisation of skills obtained at the workplace. Indicators for the school’s assessment of its performance are also provided by partner organisations that participate in work-based learning and supervise learners during their practical training.
The views of partner organisations are collected at the same time each year using a broad range of indicators. The information is collated and then shared with the partner organisations. The results are also used to supplement the information supplied by the school’s self-assessment model.
