The up2now website allows students to add to their portfolio via four sections: Results (e.g. school reports), Awards (e.g. formal accreditation), Achievements (not necessarily an official certificate), Student Profiles (i.e. summary of portfolio and personal description).
Awards are those achievements that are publicly recognised for the accreditation that is provided by the organisation upon successful completion. The inclusion of the Certificate of Attainment in Greek as an Award example in the up2now tool is a positive development that can further encourage the study of Greek in NSW schools, as it reinforces the relevance of learning Greek in the Australian educational and professional setting.
The Certificate of Attainment in Greek is the only qualification officially recognised internationally as confirming an individual’s knowledge of Greek as a language across six levels. The Centre for the Greek Language in Thessaloniki is the official institution authorised by the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs, Greece to conduct the examinations for the Certificate, following the specifications of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages.
