Vocational education in Greece has been developed only recently, mainly through foreign influences. Delay is largely attributed to idiomorphic employment patterns, favouring low‐skilled labour, and to culture, prompting youths to university education. Traditional lack of continuity of the national education policy, as well as persistent low financing of vocational education by the state, has resulted in the accumulation of long‐standing problems. This situation has added up to a sluggish vocational education organization, more or less incapable of effectively tackling crucial social issues like unemployment and the challenge of new technologies.
