Guidance for adults has been gaining ground within the lifelong learning sector in the Nordic countries. These services have grown out of public policy that in turn is responding to an increasing demand for a lifelong and individualised educational and vocational guidance of adults.
Adult guidance is also meant to be proactive in enhancing new skills within lifelong learning schemes. This present evaluative
research, titled Voice of users – promoting quality of guidance for adults in the Nordic countries, examines both the value of adult guidance to its users and their involvement in developing and organising guidance services in adult education.
FinanciaL support was provided by the Nordic Council of Ministers through the strategic funding of the advisory Group for adult Learning (SVL) and the Nordic network of adult learning (NVL).
