Students, graduates and teachers, we are the family of IEK Orizon!
In 2012, teachers and executives from our city and county, together with an organization that has more than 25 years of tradition in education, started something new. A model effort for the Greek community. To create a center of learning and vocational training that had nothing to envy from any other Private IEK in the country.
Over the years, more than 170 of our graduates worthily represent IEK Orizon in the job market at a rate of over 90%, either in Kalamata and Messinia, or in other parts of Greece and abroad (England, France, Austria , The Netherlands, the Caribbean and elsewhere).
This success is due to a number of factors, which make IEK ORIZON a pioneer in tourism and pedagogical education in the region.
We specialize in tourism and pedagogy
We have teachers that are the most renowned professionals in the field of tourism from the largest hotels in our area ( Costa Navarino, Elite, Grecotel, Filoxenia, Pharae Palace etc.)
Pedagogical students carry out their lessons in real working conditions and benefit from the vast experience of Ekpedeftiria in preschool education.
Our specialization allows us to apply a personalized approach to the internship and to match the needs of students with those of hotels and kindergartens.
We are located in green, privately owned facilities and we have well-equipped laboratories
We have a family atmosphere: at IEK Orizon the owners, the directors of studies, the instructors and the administrative staff have a very close relationship with the students in a friendly, but also strict - when necessary - environment. For us, the priority is the career and that is why we do not hesitate to be strict where needed, but we are also next to the student in all their professional concerns. It is no coincidence that IEK ORIZON is known for being like a family with its students.
We support graduates no matter how many years go by: Our graduates know that no matter how many years go by, they can knock on our door when they need it. After all, those who wish,can participate in Career Days and are interviewed for professional positions.
