Adult Education Guidance and Counselling Services in the United Kingdom. European Network of Interaction Projects in Adult Education.
Frischkopf, A.; Braun, J.
This document is a report of a visit to the United Kingdom in May 1981, to research the types and functions of the adult education guidance and counselling services available there. The report is organized in five sections. The first two sections provide a rationale for educational guidance and counselling for adults and describe the adult education system in Great Britain. Included is information on the legal bases, organizational structure, and participation in adult education. In the third section, the authors describe the situation of guidance services in continuing education in England. They found that there is little government financial support for such services and that political investment and economical resources were lacking in England. The fourth section describes the authors' visit to three further education guidance centers in London, Hatfield, and Bradford. Information is given on the history of each center, its operations, its staff and facilities, services provided, types of clients, and future plans. The final section of the report focuses on continuing education guidance in Sweden, the Federal Republic of Germany, and Denmark as a comparison to the situation of guidance services in the United Kingdom. Appendixes to the report include reports of visits to two institutes of continuing education in London, a directory of educational guidance services for adults, and a list of participants. (KC)
