Greece’s state tourism schools training ASTE professionals are to be upgraded to four-year institutions in a revised program that will reflect new trends in tourism and meet market demands.
According to the story via ANA, Education Minister Niki Kerameus and Deputy Tourism Minister Manos Konsolas signed a ministerial agreement (KYA) published on December 30 in the Government Gazette (5824/Β/30.12.2020) that will introduce courses in technology, communications, and digital marketing, foreign languages, administrative quality, hotel resources and revenue management and innovation in tourism.
Officials also see a three-month apprenticeship in each of the first three years that will be carried out during the summer season. The fourth-year will require a thesis and a report on the basis of previous years’ apprenticeships on a specific sector in tourism.
These technical schools are overseen by the Ministry of Tourism.
