Adult Education Centre is an organization that was established sixty years ago and has continuously offered educational programs for adults to our citizens. Although the primary goal of adult education centres is to offer primary and secondary school education to adults, this has now shifted. We offer a lot of informal educational programs, national and international projects and different informal study groups for all ages.
Through national projects our participants can attend computer and language courses and broaden or deepen their competences in these areas. We prepare language courses and workshops for farmers and winemakers. Through employment agencies unemployed participants can attend courses for CNC operators or forklift operators. Through programs for adults we run University of Third Age, Intergenerational Centres and study circles. Through international projects (Erasmus+, Europe for Citizens) we include local citizens into many interesting project activities.
A part of our work is covered by our Youth Centre that aims their activities are young adults (15 – 29 age). The centre prepares workshops, lectures, sport activities, concerts and other interesting and engaging activities for youth. We also apply for European Solidarity Corps projects and host international volunteers from different countries. They help in the Youth Centre, prepare workshops and presentations about their countries, project possibilities and their experiences in ESC projects.
All our activities, workshops, lectures are intended for people of all generations.
For the work we have done in international projects implementation we have received the award Jabolko kakovosti from our National agency. This is the proof that we are a competent and reliable project partner, that we can apply for and implement good practice projects and that our projects have impact on all levels.
We are a member of Association of Slovenian Adult Education Centres.
