Reception, Referral, Counselling and Support Services

To encourage adults to stay in school, help them achieve educational success and increase the graduation rate among people aged 16 and over, the Government Policy on Adult Education and Continuing Education and Training (2002) provided for improved reception and referral services (Education Act, s. 250, 1988) by adding counselling and support services.

All the services offered by SARCA (first-level reception, second-level reception, information, exploration of learning, career counselling and support) seek to help the adults carry out their career or learning plan, whether they are enrolled in general education or in vocational training or not.
