The European Social Fund, the Leonardo da Vinci Programme and Grundtvig (Socrates Programme) have supported in recent years a number of projects in the field of guidance.
Broadening access to guidance provision is one of the priorities stated in the European Council Resolution on March 2004. How to develop guidance services that are customer-centred?

A comprehensive education has become the key to a successful future. However, male resistance to education, as established by recent studies, is an increasing problem which is becoming progressively more apparent.

Adult Education and Gender Issues in Serbia
Social and political changes in Serbia, as well as economic transition, are having a huge impact on the role and position of women in the society.

Grundtvig throughout the 20th century, became part of our modern day approach thanks to their rich tradition.
