Summary/Abstract: The article connects with the planned new vocational system in Hungary and summarizes people’s experiences of dual education occurring in Germany and Switzerland during the last year. Vocational education in both countries has been successful, though they aren’t without their problems. Firms in Germany, especially in the ‘new states’, are not offering enough training places - as some of them aren’t interested in them or they simply can’t afford it. Both in Germany and in Switzerland, another difficulty is the lack of learning competences of some students. To help solve this problem, new learning places are planned to be established, being run by an organisation of employers. These could represent a third leg for dual education in the future.
