Skills Labs

The Skills Labs are a best practice because they aspire to bring about a paradigm shift in education in Greece: to move away from a knowledge-centric model to a skills-based approach where teacher and student work together to cultivate essential skills and to learn how to learn. It is also innovative because the Skills Lab adopt a whole-of-society approach whereby specific teaching modules are prepared by civil society (NGOs, universities, teachers’ groups, international organizations) and evaluated and approved by the Institute of Educational Policy. Finally, the Skills Labs also aim to create a space in which the major issues of our times are discussed (e.g., climate change, human rights, mental health issues) and promote the participation of the student, the teacher, the school unit, the local community and beyond.
