3. Employment & Entrepreneurship

The youth employment measures of the government are mainly related to the Youth Guarantee Scheme (see sub-chapter 3.6 Integration of Young People in the Labout Market) and thus the government body responsible for policy making is the Ministry for National Economy (see sub-chapter 3.2 Administration and Governance).

The policy directions also show an increasing emphasis on vocational training, in line with the directions found desirable by the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (see sub-chapter 3.3 Skills Forecasting). NEET young people are a special target group of the YG Scheme, but in general instead of focusing on low-skilled and long-term unemployed youth, support depends on individual needs (see sub-chapter 3.6 Integration of Young People in the Labour Market).

The promotion of entrepreneurship culture also appears as a key objective of employment related youth policies. Though there is no specific governmental strategy regarding the development of youth entrepreneurship competence, but the topic itself is addressed in various strategical documents, including the National Youth Strategy, the strategy on small and medium sized enterprises and the Framework Strategy for the Policy of Lifelong Learning for 2014-2020, as well as having a big emphasis in the public education (see sub-chapter 3.8 Development of Entrepreneurship Competence).
