Hungary:Glossary

Academic and career guidance as well as psychological support is provided by both educational institutions (schools, kindergartens, dormitories) and the institutions of the pedagogical assistance service in close cooperation with one another. Pedagogical assistance service institutions support teachers in kindergartens, schools and dormitories as well as parents who contact them. This support includes academic and career guidance, assessing learning abilities, kindergarten and school psychological service, educational counselling, parenting advice, speech therapy, adapted physical education, conductive education, early intervention, special education counselling and individual development of severely disabled children/pupils.

 

Academic and career guidance

Schools provide academic and career guidance for pupils as extracurricular activity. In schools, one of the teachers is responsible for academic and career guidance, whose weekly working time is made up of teaching and academic/career guidance.

In pedagogical service assistance institutions, academic and career guidance is provided by psychologists and counsellors with the following qualifications:

  • psychologist: psychologist specialising in counselling, psychologist specialising in kindergarten or school psychology
  • counsellor: either a university level teaching qualification, or a college level teaching qualification with a postgraduate qualification in student counselling

Specialists employed full-time (40 hours/week) in pedagogical assistance service institutions spend 21 hours a week on the assessment and guidance of children and pupils. In the rest of the time they prepare for their meetings, prepare expert opinions and are on duty to ensure access to services throughout opening hours.

 

School psychology, speech therapy and parenting advice

In schools and kindergartens, all teachers are responsible for monitoring the personal development of children/pupils, identifying their individual problems and support them. Some schools also employ specialists, e.g. school psychologists or social pedagogues. In the pedagogical assistance service institutions these tasks are undertaken by specialists.

Specialists working in schools or kindergartens have to meet the following qualification requirements:

  • Kindergarten and school psychologists: a degree in psychology and teaching, a psychology degree with specialisation in counselling and school psychology, a psychology degree and a postgraduate qualification in school psychology or counselling
  • Developmental teachers: any teaching degree with a postgraduate qualification for holding individual and group sessions and for assessing children/pupils with learning and behavioural difficulties; special education teacher degree specialising in children with learning disabilities, speech therapy or psycho-pedagogy.
  • Social pedagogues: a BA degree in social pedagogy
  • Speech therapists: special education degree specialising in speech therapy.

School and kindergarten psychologists employed full-time (40 hours/week) spend 22 hours a week on the individual and small-group assessment of children/pupils as well as consultation and guidance. In addition, they spend 10 hours a week preparing for and organising these activities. In the rest of their working time they undertake the necessary documentation and administration, process information required for their work and engage in continuous professional development. If needed, the weekly time spent with children/pupils may be rearranged across weeks.
