Formal vocational education and training (VET) in Slovenia starts at upper secondary level and is provided mainly by public schools.
The Ministry of Education, Science and Sport is solely responsible for preparing legislation, financing, and adopting programmes, standards and qualifications.
The Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for VET (CPI) is responsible for VET at the practical level; it monitors and guides the development of VET, provides inservice teacher training and vocational standards. The CPI also acts as a link between ministries, schools and social partners.
