Budapest Training Technology Centre (Hungary).
The Budapest Training Technology Centre (BTTC) grew out of a 1990 agreement calling for Great Britain to help Hungary develop and implement open and flexible training methods and technology-based training to support the labor force development and vocational training needs resulting from Hungary's transition to a market economy. The BTTC would be a nonprofit organization established jointly by the Budapest local government and British Ministry of Labour. Its main tasks would be as follows: collect all available open, distance, and flexible learning materials and make them available to everyone interested; give up-to-date information on available materials via a periodic newsletter; operate a demonstrating multimedia center; translate and adapt foreign multimedia materials; develop and produce new multimedia materials; provide regular training for trainers; and support educational activities in various schools and industrial training departments. The following would be the BTTC's target areas: secondary education and vocational training, retraining, language training, educational support of small ventures, and academic postgraduate training. The BTTC would build strong links with the media centers participating in the World Bank project and with the 61 schools connected to it. Comprising the BTTC's operational structure would be a media-producing department, service department for media production, and training department. (MN)
