Presentation of the School
The Higher Vocational College (Višja strokovna šola) was established at the beginning of 2008 within the framework of the Public Institution known as the "Srecko Kosovel School Centre, Sežana" (Šolski center Srečka Kosovela Sežana). The head office of the Srecko Kosovel School Centre is situated in Stjenkova ulica 3, where one of the 2 organisational units of the Srecko Kosovel School Centre is also situated. This 1st organisational unit consists of two upper secondary schools: the Grammar School (Gimnazija) and Gimnazija specialising in economics – School of Economics (Ekonomska šola). The 2nd organisational unit is the Higher Vocational College (Višja strokovna šola), which offers undergraduate programmes, and operates on the premises of the Higher Education Centre Sežana.
The Higher Vocational College provides two study curricula: Designing Materials and Photography. The length of the course is 2 years. The interweaving of theoretical knowledge and craftsmen’s skills lays the groundwork for the education process which is thus organised in the form of lectures, seminar theses and laboratory exercises. Additionally, in each academic Year the students participate in 10 weekly practical training courses given by commercial companies or craftsmen.
Exercises and certain lectures take place in the special classrooms or laboratories, which enable the students to learn about working equipment and modern technologies. The study curriculum is conducted with the guidance of qualified lecturers and instructors who have skills and experience in the related fields of science.
