Question for written answer E-005291/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Konstantinos Arvanitis (GUE/NGL), Alexis Georgoulis (GUE/NGL)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Application of European Qualifications Framework (EQF) provisions to private education in Greece

EU efforts to bring the national qualifications framework into line with its European equivalent had to be ‘frozen’ in 2014 because of the arbitrary standards of private education. In view of this, Commission EQF advisers had already begun to call for the adoption of strict regulatory framework provisions for private education and measures to ensure the quality of education provided and the legitimacy of qualifications issued by private schools.

However, under Law 4713/2020, essential issues regarding the operation of private schools and the general conditions of employment of teaching staff were removed from the Education Ministry remit, which means that they will now be issuing qualifications at the sole discretion of their owners, with no control by the Ministry.

In view of this:

1. What action will the Commission take to ensure the transparency and legitimacy of private education in Greece?

2. What steps will it take to ensure equality between students from public and private educational establishments?

3. In view of the provisions of Law 4713/2020, will the EQF advisers reiterate its guidelines to the 2014 Greek Government with a view to bringing the Greek professional qualifications framework into line with its European counterpart?
