Slovenian Institute for Adult Education (SIAE)

is the main national institution for research and development, quality and education, guidance and validation, and promotional and informative activities in the field of adult education. It was founded by decree on 27 September 1991. At the end of 2016 we are thus completing twenty-five years of successfully promoting the development of adult education and cooperation in establishing a culture of lifelong learning.

The Slovenian Institute of Adult Education drafts professional bases and evaluations, and monitors the development of the adult education system, develops various non-formal and formal forms of learning, develops programmes to improve adult literacy, and pays particular attention to improving access by vulnerable groups of adults to education and learning. In doing so, it develops the necessary  infrastructure to support learning, develops models for the self-evaluation of quality and the validation of prior learning, and provides professional education and training for adult educators. The SIAE informs professionals and the general public about all of these processes and achievements, and contributes to the broader awareness of the importance and role of adult education.

Our vision for the future continues to be an active contribution to ensuring access to and the quality of education and learning for all Slovenian citizens under the principles of free choice and equal opportunities. We believe that Slovenia's greatest comparative advantages are its self-confident, educated, learning citizens capable of dealing with changes and determined to change their living and working environment. Well-developed human, cultural and social capital are what contemporary society needs most to overcome crisis conditions and to foster smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in an atmosphere of cooperation and equality.
