In a society where employees change jobs more and more often, and the pace of implementing innovations and new technologies is con- stantly growing, people must show readiness as well as openness to constant changes. Continuing education turns out to be the expres- sion and at the same time the driving force behind this approach at a certain stage of life. This is what allows you to acquire new skills needed to survive in the labour market. In the context of lifelong le- arning, non-formal and informal education becomes as important as their formal counterpart.
European Union countries have developed various forms of guidance services for adult learners and specific strategies related to educa- tion. However, the existing offer is neither sufficient nor attractive enough to reach people in particular need of additional training and supplementing their competences.
Existing services often focus on ad hoc, short-term work and less on identifying educational pathways that lead to sustainable employment and social inclusion. Due to the lack of standardised procedures in the identification system and vali- dation of non-formal and informal knowledge, it is extremely difficult for adult education and guidance professionals to steer adults into further education and training programs.
