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

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

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.

The study examines erudition images of the national higher education policy of the present regime. First, it ana –
lyzes the characteristics of the post-industrial society and economy. It examines the particularities of education
of post-industrial era. Subsequently, the study analyzes the transformation of the role of the university in the intellectuals
formation from the medieval university through the humboldtian university (university-type Huboldt)
up to the mass university. 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

In the first part of the present study published in the Neveléstudomány journal no.2/2016 (DOI:
10.21549/NTNY.15.2016.3.7) we described the research methods, discussed the concept of qualifications framework,
presented the existing sports qualification programmes, as well as examined the historical development
of these in vocational, higher and adult education settings. The second part of the study focuses on the qualifications
in non-formal settings, also exploring the social partners’ views on the qualifications framework, and
presents the conclusions of the two-part article.

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

The paper is part of a PhD research analysing certain characteristics of qualifications systems. The hypothesis that the transition of qualifications is also a kind of evolutional process seems to be right: some qualifications discontinue, new ones are established, while some continue under the same or slightly different name. The analysis of sport qualifications system was an interesting and grateful job for several reasons: this field has a limited number of qualifications (in the formal sector), which are present on almost all levels of education from vocational education and training to higher education; moreover, sport (including one of the main training institution) has recently received a priority support, which also had an impact on the qualifications system. Throughout showing the history, types and levelling of qualifications, the paper shows examples on what reasons may lead to the failure of a qualification or how others may succeed. The author’s main field of study is the analysis of qualifications systems and qualifications frameworks – she follows the topic by being a member of the EQF Advisory Group on the one hand and by participating in the Hungarian implementation process on the other hand – this is now supplemented by a micro level analysis of the sport qualifications system.

My thesis subject contents the study of the young people living in Pest, Nógrád and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county dropped out and then retrained into studying system. I’ve investigated their emotional intensity related to the training system, modeling the situations established, decision-making criteria of knowledge, as well as through changes in lifesituations and value preferences. In order to process the topics I did structured interviews with fifty-eight subjects, which contents their careers and also the changes occurred in their careers using the Oerter-round in the moment of the dropping out and also in the moment of the re-training. In the interview I used a time related emotion-mood graph focused on the moments of the dropping out and also the time of reengagement in training, showing the motional intensity characteristic for both this periods. My hypothes is that the emotional dynamics of young people dropped out from training system looks like the model described by Borgen- Amundson, similarly to the roller coaster-like model described in the case of the long-term unemployed people had been demonstrated, because all the people interviewed shown the typical emotional intensity for the investigated periods of life presenting characteristic graphs. Based on the results of my investigation my proposal is to strength the role of career guidance, teaching learning techniques, need to be a practice-oriented training and opportunities for child support were is necessary.

Several research works in the related international literature on sociology and health sciences deal with the state of health in one selected population. Based on international experience, in our research we chose a special population, one – the helping profession worker – chronic psychiatric patients with institutions dealing with professionals. Our choice was influenced by the fact of health sector workers hopelessness, pervasive uncertainty Experiencing, changes in the context of well-being, prosperity, so typical of the state of health mapping could turn the trial into irreversible processes specific to the health sector A common feature of research on the topic well– being studies predominantly examine the self–rated subjective health status using questionnaires. There are several ones that examine the state of health based not only on self–rated subjective indicators but also using objective data gained by measurement. Moreover, our approach was to assess the objective state of health alongside the subjective factors, as our hypothesis was that the majority of the indicators presumably coincided. The conclusion was in the population doesn’t coincide the subjective and objective health status.

The goal of our study is to increase our knowledge about a significant professional and education policy event of 1970, the Fifth Congress, with the exploration of some historical and sociological coherence. Our topic has got only little scientific literature and most of them do not deal with the high importance of the Congress (Báthory, 2001; Halász 1984, Kelemen, 2003, 2007, 2015; Trencsényi, 2011). After the introduction of the policy of the second part of the sixties the study is examining that what kind of groups were there at the Congress and what kind of professional-ideological views these groups have. According to our results the Congress was the forum of all those political, trade union and pedagogical forces who opposed the New Economic Mechanism and the participants proclaim the principles of the 1961 school reform in their professional and ideological views.

In the past decade extensive research on education issues of the post 1945 period of Hungarian history has been carried out. Despite the temporal proximity of the era, no personal involvement has hindered these investigations. Tackling various topics through diverse methodology, researchers have aimed at not only exploring but also understanding the personal and institutional changes of the time. Since the years after 1948 brought about radical transformations – in the literal sense and not only in Hungary –, historical research on these is still just “scratching the surface”, in spite of the fact that many events have already been successfully uncovered and studied. The purpose of the present study is, then, to focus on a gap in the literature, by investigating and presenting the genesis of the “Pedagógiai Szemle” – today published as “Új Pedagógiai Szemle” – in the light of the press transformations of the 50s.
