The minister released the information Wednesday at the end of the 8th Ordinary Session of the Commission for Social Policy of Cabinet Council, chaired by Vice President Manuel Vicente.

According to Adão do Nascimento, the regularisation procedure implies that the documentary process of each course be prepared and delivered to the National Institute for Evaluation, Accreditation and Recognition of Studies.

After delivery it will be up to the National Institute  to analyse the document and check if the procedure is in accordance with the established standards.

This is to confirm or not the existence of techno-pedagogical conditions to teach a particular course with quality.

"It also implies that, in practice, the employees of the National Institute for Evaluation, Accreditation and Recognition of Studies assess which are the conditions to ensure the functionality of each course," said the minister.

According to the official, after this survey the sector will bring back the irregular situation of the courses in order for the National Institute draw conclusions on the measures to be taken.

In order to ensure success in this process, the minister appealed to the country’s higher education institutions to cooperate with National Institute for Evaluation, Accreditation and Recognition of Studies.

On the issue of those students who have already completed courses in the Faculties whose legalisation is yet to be assess, Adão do Nascimento said that the situation has not been examined at the Wednesday meeting.

He added that the matter has not been yet included neither in the agenda of Higher Education Ministry

nor of the National Institute for Evaluation, Accreditation and Recognition of Studies.

According to the minister, at the moment what  matters is the creation of a framework to determine the legalised  courses.

As for those courses found no complying with law, the official said it was essential to work in the light of the law in force, under formal authorisation of the Government.
