The partner organisation closely cooperates with the University and the student during the training, assesses student-employees performance through project assignments and uses its own method to document performance in conformity with the training plan developed jointly with the institution.
Partner organisations participating in the programme must provide the infrastructure and conditions required for the training as well as the professionally prepared practical instructors (professional mentors) for student-employees’ practical training during the training period who provide feedback on students’ performance.
In addition, students are entitled to remuneration for the whole period of training based on the student employment contract pursuant to the effective statutory requirements, that is, students are entitled to a salary during the periods spent both at the partner organisation and at the institution. After students complete their studies, partner organisations may decide to continue to employ students under an employment contract.
The monthly remuneration payable to dual training students corresponds to 65% of the minimum wage, and companies are exempt from the payment of contributions over the wage. Tax liability applies only to the share above the minimum wage.
Pursuant to Section 2(1) of Government Decree No. 367/2019. (XII. 30.) on the mandatory minimum wage and guaranteed wage minimum, the minimum wage increased to HUF 161,000 in 2020. The decree came into force on 01 January 2020, therefore, it is applicable to students’ remuneration from January.
