EKPAIDEFTIRIA KALOSKAMI S.A. is a private educational organization established in 1960 in Keratsini, very near the port of Piraeus. Until 2014 we provided formal secondary education (Gymnasium – Lyceum) to adult students. In 2001 we moved to new facilities and expanded our activity to various fields of Education and Training. Since 2004 we have been collaborating with the Hellenic Open University (HOU) for the greater Piraeus area and most of the islands. This involves hosting the face-to-face sessions and final examinations for about 130 Professors and 2.500 students for the 6 bachelor degree programs that are offered by the HOU. We have also implemented many training programs in ICT skills as a Training Support Centre, certified by the Ministry of Education.
Our activity after 2014 includes the foundation of two educational institutions under the brand name AXIA.
IEK AXIA is an Institute for Vocational Training licensed by the Greek Ministry of Education (7009 ΦΕΚ 1878/Β/10-07-2014). The curriculum is determined by the General Secretariat for Lifelong Learning, acting as the executive authority for Lifelong Learning in Greece. The Institute offers the following study fields: Performing Arts, Paramedical Professions, Business and Economics and ICT. The study programs include 4 semesters of vocational training and theory classes. The students complete their studies after doing a 6 months apprenticeship. The final exams are organized at a national level and the Diploma obtained is issued by the National Organization for the Certification of Qualifications and Vocational Guidance (EOPPEP).
