Since the European Summit in Lisbon, educational
policy has been depicted as a primary promoter for development and
welfare at both the individual and collective level. Educational
policy has become a framework for Europe to become “the most competitive
and dynamic economy based on knowledge in the world” until 2010.
Today, O.P. "Education".sets the foundation
for the education of the future by turning visions and actions into
institutions that associate the country’s development policy with
the evolution of its educational policy.
Co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and
the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) together with national
resources, O.P. "Education" innovates: Lifelong Learning
is incorporated and institutionalized into the educational system;
by combining European and national policies related to the development
of human resources with the National Action Plan for Employment
and the National Action Plan for Combating Social Exclusion.
There are therefore three targets
- Enhancing the quality of education
- Prevention and remedy of social exclusion
- Formation of an integrated European educational area and quality
being developed in 5 priority action lines:
1. Promotion of equal opportunities
for access to the labour market for those threatened with social
and improvement of education and vocational training within the
framework of Lifelong Learning.
and promotion of entrepreneurship and the adaptability of youth.
of women’s access to the labour market.
and amelioration of infrastructure for the implementation of ESF

Furthermore you can see the structural
diagram (in greek, pdf format) of the Operational Programme
for Education and Initial Vocational Training by Priority Action
Line, Measure and Action.
The five priority action lines which in the Operational
Program - i.e. the contract signed between Greece and European
Union - were developed as measures and actions, have been specified
in the Programme Complement
(PC) into categories of operations, in other words into projects
In order for the PC to be composed, Committees of
Experts worked together, while Coordinating Committees elaborated
on the proposals so that the program has the cohesion needed to
maximize the effectiveness of the subsidiary actions. The approval
of the Programme Complement that signaled the beginning of the implementation
of O.P. "Education", was taken by a body consisting of
social institutions, the 1st Monitoring Committee (May 2001),while
amendments were approved by the 2nd Monitoring Committee (June 2002).
With O.P. "Education" 2000-2006 our perception
of education is being re-evaluated. The path to developing conscious
and active citizens is inherent in the right to employment and self-actualization
and is facilitated with lifelong access to education.
