Education and Training Monitor 2018: Greece

European Commission, (2018), “Education and Training Monitor 2018: Greece

  • Education funding is low. Better monitoring of spending could help improve efficiency.
  • Compulsory pre-primary education will be extended. Affordable childcare for under 3 year-olds remains scarce, resulting in declining participation and increased reliance on informal childminding.
  • Citizenship education is well covered in general education but less present in vocational education.
  • Tertiary educational attainment has increased further and is well above the EU average. Despite improvements, recent tertiary education graduates still face the lowest employability in the EU, together with the highest overqualification in their jobs.
  • Provision of vocational education and training was strengthened by the expanded apprenticeship system, while adult learning remains insufficient, especially the training of employees in companies.
