EOPPEP: RefeNet national partner for Greece

The National Organisation for the Certification of Qualifications and Vocational Guidance (EOPPEP) is the national partner in the European network ReferNet for Greece. The year 2016 marks the first year the Organisation represents Greece in the network, thereby extending the fruitful cooperation of EOPPEP with Cedefop.

The Organisation’s mission is interlinking education and training with the needs of the labour market, upgrading the occupational qualifications of the labour force, reinforcing its employment prospects and strengthening social cohesion, by investing in active citizenship in a contemporary knowledge society and economy.

EOPPEP is a statutory executive body in the National Network for Lifelong Learning responsible for certifying the “outputs” of non-formal education and informal learning, as well as providing scientific support for counseling and career guidance services in Greece.

In parallel, EOPPEP is the national structure of European networks for qualifications and European transparency and mobility tools. In particular:

  • National Coordination Point for the European Qualifications Framework (EQF NCP)
  • National Reference Point in the European Network for Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET)
  • National Contact Point for the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET)
  • National Centre for Europass
  • National Information Centre for Career Quidance (Euroguidance)
