Guidance and Validation Unit combines two activities.

We provide the following in the scope of developing the guidance activity in adult education:

  • counselling individuals and institutions in relation to adult education,
  • development work, training and counselling to support the operation of the network of adult education guidance centres (ISIO centres) involving 14 regional guidance centres with almost sixty dislocated units,
  • planning and implementing national events for the guidance centre network, and
  • the development of databases and other professional materials to support the guidance activity in adult education.

Taking into account the recognition and validation of the knowledge and experiences of adults obtained in various ways, this work entails:

  • the development of new approaches and tools for recognition and validation of the knowledge and experiences of adults,
  • training of professional staff to work in this field, and
  • cooperation in the development and implementation of a national system of vocational qualifications, with an emphasis on training the members of commissions for the verification and certification of national vocational qualifications (NVQ).

We also work with other national organisations and the network of adult educators in both areas. We foster international cooperation, and are responsible for developing and publishing Slovenian professional literature for the aforementioned areas.
