This publication is the final report of Cedefop’s thematic country review of apprenticeship in Slovenia, conducted between June 2015 and March 2017 at the request of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia.

The report presents the key findings and suggestions for action, including reflections on the Law on Apprenticeship that was evolving at the time of the review and was adopted in May 2017. The review suggests starting by laying the foundation for a clear vision of, and broad policy for, apprenticeship. It should continue with the building blocks of careful piloting and monitoring, building on the existing knowledge base; motivating companies and learners through flexibility and customised support, including improved career guidance; enhancing communication, cooperation and coordination among all actors and acceptance of their responsibilities; ensuring that companies have competent mentors; and developing a sustainable funding model accompanied by non-financial support.

Since May 2014, Cedefop has carried out Thematic Country Reviews on Apprenticeships in five volunteer countries: Lithuania and Malta as part of a first wave (2014-2015); GreeceItaly and Slovenia as part of a second wave (2015-2017). Cedefop has carried out a third wave of reviews in two more countries, Cyprus and Croatia, and piloted a lighter version of the TCR (flash TCRs) in Belgium (French-speaking Community) and Sweden.
