Abstract: In Greece tourism education and training is provided in all education levels after compulsory education by a multitude of institutions which belong to the public and the private sector. However, the State seems to be the major participant in the field of education and training. In the area of private tourism education and training the following institutions operate in Greece: private Vocational Lyceums [EPAL] (secondary education), private Institutes of Vocational Training [IEK] (post-secondary education), numerous Laboratories of Liberal Studies [EES] and private Centers of Vocational Training [KEK] (Vocational Training). EPALs and IEKs are supervised by the Ministry of National Education and Religious Affairs and the Organization of Vocational Education and Training whereas the institutional framework for the EESs is ambiguous. Nevertheless, a considerable part of students who do not manage to be admitted to higher education chooses the private ΙΕSs in order to pursue their studies. In order to investigate the degree and the way that Private IEKs penetrate the Greek education system, the structure of studies and the professional career of the graduates, a primary census survey was conducted. Firstly, these institutions were tracked down and recorded and then questionnaires were distributed. This paper concludes that the graduates of the Private Institutes of Vocational Training (IIEK) in Greece penetrate substantially and adapt easily to the tourism labor market occupying posts relevant to their studies while a great number of specialized teaching staff work in these institutions.
