The state secretary added that the basis of the school’s good reputation is the professionally committed teachers and the modern, practical educational environment, where teachers and students develop by helping and inspiring each other. For 120 years, the institution has been committed to making the agricultural profession even more attractive to young people. Here, successive generations were able to acquire high-level professional knowledge, which enabled them to make a significant contribution to our country’s economy. Dr. Márton Nobilis pointed out that in preparation for the challenges of the 21st century, a solar panel system and modern heating solutions were developed in the institution with the support of the KEHOP 5.2.2 grant. The modernization of the buildings and the continuous development of the infrastructure show that the school is not satisfied with nurturing the reputation of the past, but is also open to the challenges of the future. Their dual training programs and industrial partnerships indicate that the institution prepares students for professional life with real experiences. The school not only educates students, but also trains professionals and community leaders, thus ensuring the renewal and retention of the profession and rural life.

The state secretary noted that the vocational training system has undergone significant changes in recent years

The following academic years also promise continuous changes. Robotization and technological innovations pose new challenges for both students and teachers. The school’s students can learn modern technologies and methods, while being aware that the knowledge gained from the past is essential for future success. And the government remains committed to the continuous support of education and vocational training, he added.
