Research on human resource scarcity in Hungarian public education 2021

On behalf of the Representation of the European Commission in Hungary, T-TUDOK surveyed the teacher supply of Hungarian public education. During the research that took place in the first half of 2021, international and domestic literature and the available international and domestic databases (TALIS, PIAAC KIRstat, wage tariff survey, national competence measurement, DPR) were thoroughly analysed. In addition, we conducted an online questionnaire survey among students in teacher education, educators and heads of institutions, as well as we made several interviews and focus group discussions among educators, school heads and other experts. Since the primary goal of the research was to explore the supply and demand of teachers in Hungary, the research also covered the issue of workload and salary of educators working in Hungarian public education to explore factors that can help the efficient use of labour force in Hungarian education.

Teacher 2010

Overall 3353 teachers participated in this project resulting in data flowing in from 2783 school teachers of 148 schools and 570 nurses of 100 kindergartens in March 2010. Compared to earlier studies, data collected with diary methods allowed a more detailed analysis of teachers’ work-structure and also gave an opportunity to shed light on not yet researched segments of their work such as education related activities outside classroom, structure of classroom and out of classroom teaching, after-school professional activities etc..
