EOPPEP aims at implementing a national quality system in the area of non-formal education drawing upon European and international experience. Availability of adequate and consistent data and indicators is the key to understanding the components of Vocational Education and Training, in order to strengthen lifelong learning and to assess in qualitative terms the progress in LLL development and promotion.
The design of the National Framework for Quality Assurance in Lifelong Learning (π3) is in alignment with the recommendation of the European Parliament and Council 2009 / C 155/01 of June 18 in order to establish a European Reference Framework for quality assurance in Vocational Education and Training.
EOPPEP is the National Reference Point for Quality Assurance in VET and represents Greece in the European network for Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET).
The European Network EQAVET is a community of practice where members and national experts exchange information and experience in open discussions, initiate a process of mutual learning and consensus building for the development of common principles, reference criteria, indicators and tools for quality improvement in VET, as well as the implementation of the Reference Framework, reach shared results and solutions in the development of guidelines and criteria for quality assurance, embedding a culture of quality improvement and a sense of ownership in implementing across Europe the Reference Framework (EQARF), which was created with the Recommendation of the European Parliament and Council in June 18, 2009. This community of practice leads to higher levels of cooperation and synergy within and across EU Member States on quality assurance related issues.
European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET) brings together the EU Member States, the Social Partners and the European Commission to develop and improve quality assurance in European VET systems within the context of the implementation of the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework by:
- assisting the Member States in developing effective approaches to support the implementation of the Reference Framework,
- developing a culture of quality, to be embedded at European level and other levels with the help of the Quality Assurance National Reference Points and other Network members,
- supporting the Member States and the European Commission in the monitoring and implementation of the Reference Framework within the context of the Education and Training 2020 Strategy,
- supporting the quality assurance dimension of work in EQF and ECVET.
