Project ACCESS - Access to vocational guidance for people at risk of social exclusion
Overview This is a Leonardo Survey and Analysis project which had partners from Finland, Ireland, Italy and the United Kingdom, with the addition of observers from the Czech Republic. The project was conceived with quite a depth of detail and all partners did essentially the same research for each country. The partnership looked at social exclusion and made case studies of guidance services which were notable for their efforts to enhance access. There was scope for negotiation on methodology and of necessity on content. For example, there was little on lifelong learning for the Italian Partner to contribute, and few conventional guidance services in Ireland. This diversity led to a richness. 

European collaboration in this project added value through:

    • an appreciation of the differences and commonalities between different European states;
    • the development of European concepts and a shared ethos concerning people at risk of marginalisation;
    • the exchange, transfer and dissemination of ideas and initiatives. (Clayton, 2001, pp. 1, 5)
