The Environmental Protection College (EPC) in Velenje has an elaborate and published vision and mission. The mission is clearly expressed and reflects the requirements of business and non-business sector for quality professionals from the field of managing and protecting the environment and new eco-technologies.

The strategy aiming at assuring employability and employment is also based on the process of developing competencies and educational profile. With its first and second cycle study programmes, EPC also participates in this process on the national level and has great support by other institutions, which was evident in the assessed documentation and in our findings from the site visit.

EPC has a highly developed culture of quality. Each year, it carries out self-evaluation based on numerous surveys and analyses. In planning its future work, it tries to follow the results from self-evaluation reports to its best capabilities.
