Iosif George Fagoulis


There is a need for life long learning and continuous education of the citizens (adult-education), irrespective of their educational background, professional occupation and socio-economic status. This need is nowadays emerging as a necessity for citizens to successfully meet the challenges of modern technological, social and cultural developments.

In Greece, the General Secretariat of Adult Education (which is recently renamed to General Secretariat of Life Long Education - GGDVM) along with the Institute of Continuous Adult Education (IDEKE) are responsible bodies for Life Long Learning.

According to the Law 3369/171/6-7-2005, the Centres of Adult Education (KEE), the Schools of Second Chance (SDE), the Prefectorial Committees of Public Re-education (NELE) and the Parents’ Schools were incorporated into the Public Structures of Life Long Learning. These structures are continuously expanding their re-educative activities in order to offer high quality programs to adult citizens. These educational programs are oriented to meet contemporary needs and demands of various aspects of societal requirements.

In the present study, some of the most important results of a research are presented. This research was carried out in the District of Western Greece with reference to the re-educative needs of adult trainees enrolled in the Health Education Programs.
