Presentation of the partner:
The Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Vocational Education and Training is a public institution, which was established in 1995 by the government and the co-founders of the Chamber of Commerce (GZS) and the Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia (OZS). The centre carries out research, development and advisory work: examines the developing trends in the job market and prepares profession profiles and competent-based occupations. Furthermore, the centre develops methodologies and prepares modern modular-based educational programs of lower and secondary along with secondary and higher professional education. It is responsible for traineeships and improving the knowledge of teachers, professional workers and mentors. It provides professional support and counselling for the executors of professional and technical education. It also promotes and coordinates various development and innovation projects.

Project role of the partner:
The CPI, as the main Slovenian institution in the area of professional development and expert education in the common professional cooperation with Martineum Felnőttképző Akadémia, has importantly contributed to the development of new and upgraded so far underdeveloped educational programs in the field of handicrafts and domestic activities. CPI will develop training programmes for different target groups (existing and potential craftsmen, rural women, difficult to employ young, unemployed, disabled, retired, VDC cadets and other vulnerable groups, domestic and foreign visitors). CPI will also monitor the implementation of these programs while the project is running and will also evaluate it regularly.
