Greece:Glossary

The following constitute the administrative bodies of Lifelong Learning and, by extension, of Adult Education:

  • At central level, the main body for Lifelong Learning is the General Secretariat for Life Long Learning and Youth of the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. According to Law 3879/2010, the purpose of this Secretariat is to plan public policy for lifelong learning, design relevant regulations, prepare the corresponding national programme and monitor its implementation.
  • The National Organisation for the Certification of Qualifications and Vocational Guidance (EOPPEP) is responsible for certifying the input and output of informal education, bodies offering lifelong learning services, job profiles and programmes, as well as the qualifications of educators of adult learners.  In addition, EOPPEP is responsible for the development of the Hellenic Qualifications Framework and its correlation to the European Qualifications Framework.
  • Another body supervised by the Minister of Education is the Youth and Lifelong Learning Foundation (INEDIVIM).  As far as Lifelong Learning is concerned, INEDIVIM is responsible for the implementation of the following programmes: Schools for Parents, Second Chance Schools, Odysseus, Internships for Graduates of Vocational Training Institutes, Scholarships granted to students of Vocational Training Institutes.
  • The national strategic educational and training agent for the employees of public and local administration is the National Centre for Public Administration and Local Government (EKDDA).
  • Law 4186/2013 makes provision for establishing Lifelong Learning Administrations (DDVM), which provide decentralised services on behalf of the General Secretariat for Lifelong Learning at regional and local level.  These centres are responsible for governing, monitoring and supervising Vocational Training Institutes (IEK), Vocational Training Schools (SEK), Second Chance Schools (SDE) and Lifelong Learning Centres (KDVM) within their area and scope of responsibility.  Under Law 4386/2016 the above-mentioned responsibilities are exercised on behalf of the Lifelong Learning Administration, part of the General Secretariat for Lifelong Learning and New Generation.  Henceforth, in provisions of Law 4186/2013 or other law provisions, the term Lifelong Learning Administrations (DDVM) is used in place of Lifelong Learning Administration of the General Secretariat for Lifelong Learning and New Generation.
  • Finally, the Manpower Employment Organisation (OAED) apart from the promotion of employment and the insurance of unemployed individuals, as well as the social protection of motherhood and family, also promotes and encourages vocational education and training.
