(ArmInfo) -. The Government of Armenia intends to regulate the system of informal education.
Deputy Minister of Culture and Youth Arthur Poghosyan said at a briefing, Thursday, that the Government has approved a concept of informal education. He explained that the system of informal education implies educational courses, lectures and seminars that require no examinations or tests, reports Trend.
Many organizations provide such kind of education in Armenia and the Government has resolved to control them up to the licensing. Criteria of informal education are to be adopted within the year, which will allow the authorities to estimate the quality of knowledge. It is necessary for acknowledgment of the certificates of educational courses, lectures and seminars, the deputy minister said. Majority of journalists think that licensing of this activity is pregnant with additional corruption risks. However, the deputy minister disagreed with them and brought the example of the international experience.
