The Greek qualifications register comprises of 674 qualifications classified in the Hellenic qualifications framework (HQF), which is referenced to the EQF. Their description is based on a unified description standard suggested by the European Commission. The register is a web application, progressively developed and enriched since 2015, which is available to the public for accessing information and to authorised users for updating information about qualifications.
Cooperation between EOPPEP and the European Commission’s technical team focused on assessing the development of the Greek qualifications register, and linking it both to the Learning opportunities and qualifications in Europe and the ESCO portals. The register has gradually become an appreciated resource for ESCO regarding information managed and held at national level.
During the preparations of ESCO v1 release, Greece, along with Latvia, participated in a pilot project, which tested the ESCO classification, providing information on qualifications displayed on ESCO. They were also ensuring that this information was constantly available, complete, correct and up to date. The project contributed to linking ESCO skills/competences with related qualifications.
