Meeting with the Minister of Education and Religious Affairs, N. Kerameos, the Deputy Minister, S. Zacharakis, Yen. Secretary of A/Level, B/Level and Special Education, Ann. Gika, the Yen. Secretary of Vocational Education, Training and Lifelong Learning, G. Vuccino and ministry officials, had on Wednesday 26 August 2020 a delegation of the ESAMES, headed by its president Ioannis Vardakastanis, the Secretary General Ioannis Lymvaios and the executive of the ESAME Christina Samaras. During the meeting, issues related to vocational education were discussed, training and lifelong learning of persons with disabilities and chronic conditions, submitted in a memorandum, in order to be examined with a view to drawing up a draft law, as well as the very serious issues of teachers and other public education staff who are disabled or chronically ill and/or have in their care a person with disabilities who, due to the low allocation they receive under the new recruitment system, cannot be appointed close to their place of permanent residence, which have been submitted by a memorandum.

The President of the ESA AND the Secretary-General stressed that our country does not provide organised vocational education, training and lifelong learning to people with disabilities and chronic conditions, as demonstrated by the 2 Statistical Information Bulletin (06.03.2018) of the "Observatory on Disability Issues" of the E.S.A.M.A. and like the E.S.A.M.A. and its Member Organisations have as their fixed position. There is absolutely no link between these structures, schools (EEEK, EEGYL) and schools with the real needs of the labour market and there is no provision for certification of the professional qualifications of people with disabilities and chronic diseases.
