Who are we?

 

The Cyprus Educational Mission (KEA) of Great Britain was founded in 1977 by a decision of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus. It consists of a Head - Inspector and a team of 25 qualified teachers seconded from Cyprus serving in the Greek Parish Schools (EPS) in and outside London.

Its offices are located in London and are managed by the Inspector - Chief, who, in direct cooperation and under the direction of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus, ensures the proper functioning, organization and equipment of the schools. The Head of the JSA Inspectorate regularly visits EQS in and out of London and deals with educational and administrative issues, such as teacher placement in schools, their guidance and training, and the evaluation of their work.

The JSB employs a large number of on-site teachers annually (this number is not fixed) on a day-to-day basis. There are about 70 school units operating throughout the UK today, providing education to some 6,500 Greek children. The JSB has appointed permanent and / or part-time teaching staff. The education provided covers Greek Language, Greek History, Religious and Geography, Music, Dance and Greek Culture in pre-primary, elementary and high school Greek (GCSE and A 'Level) children. The main objective is to preserve the cultural character of the community and to reinforce the national mindset of children.

KEA organizes regular training seminars for permanent and part-time staff and takes an active part in the preparation and presentation of community celebrations and events, as well as educational conferences. KEA teachers are organized in small groups and take responsibility in various areas of the Mission's activities, such as the production and distribution of teaching material, the production of radio broadcasts, the development of the Curriculum and their participation in European and other educational programs with television. connections with school children in Cyprus and beyond.

The Cyprus Educational Mission through the Supervisor - Supervisor promotes and implements the aims and objectives of the Greek Parish Education Curriculum and is the main lever for activating the teaching staff, schools, students and assistants, and support to make Greek education in the UK as effective as possible.

KES with its serious educational work, has contributed greatly to the better organization / administration of the school units, the smooth operation of the schools and their staffing with valuable teaching staff, the training of the teaching staff, the upgrading of the educational work and the upgrading of the students. It aspires to achieve even better results in the future.
