In Flanders, various guidance services focus on careers or employment, but none of these services focus explicitly on educational guidance. However, there seems to be a need for educational guidance, especially as adult education in Flanders is very fragmented and falls under different policy domains and various ministries. As a consequence of this fragmentation, it is difficult for adult learners, and especially the low educated, to find the course that best suits their needs. The policy experimentations were carried out by the Word Wijs! service of de Stap (the Step) in Ghent and Leerwinkel West-Vlaanderen (The Learning Shop) in West Flanders. Both organisations have built on existing services and expertise to further develop the educational guidance service.
