We provide a variety of extra-curricular activities for students, such as athletics, concerts and competitions in general knowledge and professional skills including Euroskills, Sloveniaskills, PIKO – technical drawing and ACAD competitions. Students also participate in humanitarian activities which contributes to their personal growth and the quality of life.

Classes are held in well-equipped classrooms some also with modern interactive whiteboards, computers and projectors all of which have internet connectivity. Practical lessons are held in specialised classrooms and workshops. Some classes take place in a kinesthetic classroom which contains "kinesthetic" - motion desks that allow students to be in motion while they learn providing a classroom experience that is far more conducive to learning than traditional methods.

All study programmes include on-the-job training in different companies and nursery schools, ranging from two weeks per school year at the very least, whereas apprenticeship education model comprises spending half of each school year in a working environment in addition to regular coursework. This is how students acquire knowledge and work experience in real-life working conditions.
