European Projects

DIMITRA Educational Organisation has provided, for more than 25 years, high quality Initial and Continuing Vocational Education and Training (VET) services to the entire country, training over 3.000 people per year. Since its establishment in 1989, our organisation has participated in several transnational projects exchanging know how and transferring a high degree of expertise regarding both methodology development and production of practical solutions matching specific vocational and professional development needs while enriching our national training activities and projects with the employment of innovative participative tools and methodologies towards the promotion of cultural, educational, scientific and sustainable development. Additionally, DIMITRA actively participates in various European networks and transnational exchanges developing a continuous flow of valuable know-how towards the overall functioning of the Organisation.

In the last seven years, the Development & International Cooperation Department refocused its activities and participated in over 65 projects – many of which have been selected as Best Practises- in collaboration with an extensive number of organisations from Greece and European countries, integrating the principles of Sustainable Development and Total Quality in VET provided, strengthening Qualifications and Skills, while promoting entrepreneurship and establishing start-ups in the Creative Industry, Tourism, New Technologies and Green Jobs. Particular attention has been given to the enhancement of the our counselling services with innovative participative tools and methodologies in the areas of employment and integration of specific social groups and immigrants, while promoting equal opportunities and combating social exclusion. In that context, we have implemented several integrated Local Sustainable Development & Employability Plans.
