|Returning to learning as an adult can be challenging especially if early experiences of education were difficult. |
AEGIS works to encourage adult learners to think about their lives in a way that they might not have done before, to re-evaluate their existing strengths, abilities and skills as well as looking at ways to develop new ones.
Guidance works from the position that its the learner who holds all the answers to the questions and choices that face them and that its the role of the advisor to work with them in uncovering these.
In essence adult guidance is about assisting the learner to look positively at the world of education and work and see a new space for themselves within it.
