Current issues concerning the label market (re)integration of people with disabilities in the context of adult education – Part 2.

Examining the training opportunities for disabled adults is justifiable for several reasons. The economic activity of the disabled people is very low, their employment is significally lower than the employment indicators of the society’s majority and the employment data from the European Union average. The low employment rate of the target group can be explained by their relatively low qualification. The role of adult education therefore – both in training and in terms of over- and training forward – is very dominant. The most important step for their 98 English abstracts 2016/4. English abstracts integration to the labour market is the improvement of their employment, which can be reached primarily by their integration into the training. For this, the accessible educational-training infrastructure, special trained experts, providing increased personal, material and methodological conditions are essential. During in my work and my research it was clearly demonstrated that interpretation problems can be experienced in the legal obligation’s implication and providing equal access is solved only in rare cases. The main cause of this, the adult education institutions does not have the physical conditions for the effective training for the disabled people and preparedness of the experts at these institutions are deficient in the area providing equal access. We can highlight from the EU and other international organizations’ lifelong learning concept that the adult education should serve for both economic and social goals.

Congruence/incongruence between qualification and occupation based on Hungarian and international research results

The matching between qualification and occupation has been investigated in some Hungarian and international research in the last years, taking into accounts the level and field of qualifications. The vertical and horizontal congruence/incongruence test research can be divided into two groups according to the size of population. One group consists of studies that have examined employees for all levels of qualifications, while the other group comprises the research to the employment of graduates. Based on research results incongruent employment is a common phenomenon in most European countries both vertically and horizontally. However, real mismatch can pose a problem, when the employees cannot utilize their skills. Possibly such curriculum is needed that will satisfy the needs of the labour market for transferable skills and specific knowledge as well.

Finally, the study shows the incidence of few words (intelligentsia, intellectuals formation, erudition, specialist training) in Hungarian higher education laws and the government’s higher education strategy. The author concludes that use of the words of laws and the concept reflects the economic and political movements. After the 2010 change of government in a “re-industrialization” economic policy is observed, which caused a turnaround in education policy towards the specialist erudition image

The emotional map of teacher’s society

This study is one part of a larger research project and focuses on the explorative and descriptive approach of teachers’ emotional characteristics. Nowadays the role of the emotional intelligence in successful everyday life is a widely known fact (Goleman, 2008; Ciarrochi et al., 2001). It is also well known that the teachers’ profession and the stressors based on their jobhave it’s ownpattern. Hungarian teachers are vulnerable by burn out syndrome caused by the frequent changes, hygienic work factors, the prestige of the job role and many other issues. Emotional competencies play important role by preventing burn out, or by efficiency and by managing challenges. The aim of this study is to describe the character of teachers’ emotional intelligence: how high their emotional intelligence is, how their characteristics exactly appear; what are their strengths and where they need interventions to manage weaknesses. This study shows whether there are differences among teachers in their emotional competencies depending on sex, age, educational level, work experience or type of their workplace. Data were collected during 2014 and the sample contains 496 teachers; they came from all over the country and from every kind of institutions. Based on this quasi representative sample we can describe strong tendencies about Hungarian teachers’ emotional attributes. This study is a kind of status report about the situation of spring 2014 which allows us to give the emotional map of the Hungarian teacher’s society. Based on our findings we can highlight some intervention points which can help teachers to be more effective in their daily and working life.

The language teacher’s role in motivating adult learners’ of English in a corporate environmet: Lessons learnt from three studies

Several studies confirm that teachers play a significant role in motivating language learners (e.g., Mezei&Csizér, 2005; Radel, Sarrazin, Legrain, & Wild, 2010; Dörnyei&Ushioda, 2011). In spite of this, very few empirical studies have been conducted with adult learners in an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) setting. Some exceptions are Shoaib and Dörnyei’s (2005), Szaszkó’s (2007), and Murray’s (2011) studies. However, none of them addresses specifically the teacher’s role in motivating adult learners of English in a corporate environment. My paper attempts to fill this niche by presenting the results of three recent studies. (1) an interview study (N=17) which investigates how the motivational dispositions of corporate English learners have changed since the political changes in Hungary in 1990 to the present day, (2) a quantitative questionnaire study (N=127) measuring adult learners’ attributions, (3) a validation study (N=5) presenting the validation of a research instrument. The results of all the studies above have confirmed the significance of the teacher’s influence on motivating learners of English.

Nowadays the basic requirements of competitive operating for the organisation are the knowledge and developing and exploitation of this. The purpose of knowledge management is a systematic and organised improving the organisation’s ability to mobilise knowledge to enhance performance. (KPMG, 2003) Especially we examine knowledge management as a potential tool for supporting workplace learning and investigate the common role collaborative media tools play in knowledge management, workplace learning. The spread of flexible working time, telecommuting and the massive presence of ICT tools in the world of both work and leisure reframe the workplace learning habits. At the end of the study we attempt to highlight the need of new approach about workplace learning. In the “anywhere anytime” work the key is for organizations how to can manage their knowledge, how to takes place knowledge-sharing among colleagues and what are the opportunities for development of their knowledge.

Hungarian graduate students’ views on the roles and tasks of education

Doctoral studies in Hungarian higher education have a strong focus on developing researcher identity, and give less support for preparing on teaching duties even though doctoral students will provide the new workforce in academia. This study explores doctoral students’ opinions about their teaching roles and experiences based on a survey conducted among Hungarian doctoral students. The results reveal that the system supports the socialization of “professional scholars and amateur teachers” (MacLaren, 2004) asdoctoral students associate teaching performance more with personality traits and less dependent on expert knowledge. International trends on academic professionalization show a strong emphasis on teaching and learning scholarship consequently in the changing process of Hungarian doctoral training system we should pay more attention to develop students’ ex – pertise on teaching.
