Slovenian labour force has thirst for knowledge


A new educational programme in Slovenia has helped over 300 adults in less than two months.

The free programme is targeting employed adults, aged 45 or older, with under four years’ secondary level education. It is focused in the urban region of Ljubljana, where more than 35 000 people meet these criteria.

The programme is split into two courses. The first course offers counselling and ‘non-formal’ learning validation, which helps identify an individual’s needs and informs them of any available education and training opportunities. The second course covers a wide range of topics including English, digital skills, professional correspondence and other areas necessary to acquire key skills for the labour market.

The programme is financed by the European Social Fund and the Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport.
