In the autumn, education and learning are once again at the forefront of the general public’s interest. However, finding the right provider or programme is not always easy. From the multitude of online offers, it is hard to extract the information we are looking for. Therefore, accurate data collected on one website can be of great help.

The Where to get knowledge platform is a shortcut to the most current and transparent education offer in Slovenia in one place

On the Where to get knowledge platform (in Slovenian), we collect and publish the offer of numerous AECs, schools, societies, institutes, libraries, museums and galleries, as well as other ALE providers in one place.

With just a few clicks, users can easily find the educational programme, course, workshop or lecture they are interested in and contact the provider.

The published education offer changes on a daily basis. There are already over 1,300 ALE programmes available, and the offer is updated daily.

In addition to the offer of various educational institutions, other information on ALE opportunities and ways to receive free guidance can also be found on the platform. Inspirational stories of individuals to whom learning has opened up new possibilities in life are published. Their stories encourage website visitors to decide to acquire new skills.

In the platform, ALE providers promote their programmes free of charge

By registering on the Where to get knowledge platform, organisations, institutes and other institutions increase the possibility for participants to find them. They enter their programmes on the platform and thus become more recognisable. Moreover, they are presented to the general public free of charge.

We co-create the content on the platform

The ALE providers also inform us about other current events in the field of ALE at the local level. In addition, they send us success stories and short video statements we then include on the platform.

The Where to get knowledge platform is also intended for counsellors in ISIO centres and Self-Directed Learning Centres. The educational offer, gathered in one place, helps them inform and guide individuals in choosing the appropriate educational programme, course or training.

In addition to information on the ALE offer, adult educators can also find information on the platform (in the so called EPALE corner) about the possibilities of upgrading their professional knowledge, and current ALE events.
