The aim of this Master's thesis was to research the Slovenian model of study circles organised by the Slovenian Institute for Adult Education in more depth. In order to understand the answers of research questions a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods were used; an online survey in addition to thorough interviews with study circle participants and mentors were carried out. The quantitative method of the online survey enabled me access to more in depth research in the form of interviews. The online survey results do not show any correlation between the participation in study circles and the other variables (unemployment, threat to work, duration of unemployment, working activity). The number of units in the sample is too small to be inferred onto the entire population. The key focus of the research work is on the in-depth interviews. The discussions revealed that the mentor is key for the operation of the study circle. The motivation of participants is ranked highly in such a case. I believe that the spatial dispersion of study circles significantly complements and upgrades the offer of lifelong career orientation services in Slovenia. In my opinion, free of charge co-operation is the second key element which also brings learning closer to the most vulnerable groups within the Slovenian population. The development of a green jobs system has a basis in study circles, which is worth taking into account and placing into various systems throughout Slovenia. Respectable green jobs can help preserve human dignity and conserve nature.
