RIC Novo mesto

Development and Education Centre Novo mesto

RIC Novo mesto is an adult education centre with more than 60 years of experience. Our organisation was established as a public equivalent body by the Municipality of Novo mesto, the largest city in Southeast Slovenia. We currently employ 17 people and cooperate with more than 130 regular external experts, teachers, mentors, and researchers. We develop and implement innovative formal and non-formal education programmes and offer guidance services for different target groups: general public, people living in rural areas, people with special needs, young adults, the unemployed, senior citizens, the Roma population, immigrants, prisoners, employees in the search for new training and education, etc.

As a public body, we work closely with a wide network of local, regional, and national partners, such as municipalities, ministries, regional development agencies, chamber of commerce and industry, Chamber of Craft, other adult education organisations, primary and secondary schools, higher education institutes and faculties, NGOs, enterprises, etc. Based on our project work, we cooperate with a wide network of international partners.

RIC Novo mesto strives for the quality of implementation in all areas of our work. Acquired certificates, sigils, and other documents represent recognition and confirmation that we have already achieved some of our objectives, and that we are on the right track. We have ISO 9001:2008 (ISO 9001:2015) which is an internationally recognized quality standard, issued by an international organization ISO (International Standard Organization). Within Guidance Centre Novo Mesto (under the supervision of the Slovenian Institute for Adult Education) we have developed a system of quality – a framework for Quality Assessment and quality development in Adult Education Guidance Centres.
