"Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything."
Napoleon Hill, American writer
According to the Greek legislation (Law 3848/2010), since the school year 2013-2014, the participation in the Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection (ASEP) competition for prospective teachers, who are graduates of Greek Universities, requires the possession of a Certificate of Pedagogical and Teaching Competence for the assignment in Primary and Secondary Education. With this Certificate, the Athens University of Economics and Business graduates may as well apply for their recruitment by the Ministry of Education for positions with short-term contracts or for positions of hourly teachers in Primary and Secondary Education or work in private schools.
"An adult trainer has to be first and foremost a good person"
Peter Jarvis, Professor of Adults Education, Open University, UK
