are several international networks that Slovenian national institutions
participate in. These are the TT Net, ReferNet, Eurydice, CRA Net and ESREA.
University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences (Institute for Social
Sciences), is an active member of CRA Net. The Cranfield Network on Comparative
Human Resource Management (Cranet) project was established in 1989 with
five of the founder countries involved in this unique and important research
project in human resource management. It is coordinated by the Centre for
European Human Resource Management at Cranfield School of Management. The
Cranet survey is now the largest and most representative independent survey
of HRM policies and practices in the world.
Ministry of Education and Sport, in 2003, informed CEDEFOP about the ambition
to participate in The Training of Trainers Network (TTnet). The Ministry
suggested the National Institute for Vocational Education (CPI) to
be the coordinating body. Since than TT Net Slovenia has been developing
also in Slovenia. The start was financed by the ESF, since lifelong learning
has been the priority in the period 2004-2006. TT Net Slovenia wants to
include all institutions that contribute to teacher training. In this activity
the cooperation between different fields is crucial.Sseveral workshops
and events have been performed, including 55 workshops and one conference
last year. were The CPI, with the National VET Observatory of Slovenia
as its unit, is the national coordinator of the ReferNet. In this role
it contributes to several Cedefop activities (VetBib, ERO Base, eKnow VET,
etc.) and participates in events on national and European level.
Eurydice Unit Slovenia works within the Ministry of Education and Sport.
The Network offers a well-established source of regularly updated information
on the diversity of education systems in Europe. Eurydice Slovenia developed
an on-line information network. Its activities include also publishing
on important topics in education.
Slovenian Institute for Adult Education (ACS) is a member of ESREA. When
ESREA was established in 1991, it was decided that the major activities
to be encouraged by this new European organisation should focus upon the
creation of ESREA European Research Networks that would enable active researchers
and PhD students to meet on a regular basis in order to critically discuss
their ongoing research in thematic areas.
