Various genetic disorders may cause the sensory organs not function properly, or a loss of the sensations in some circumstances. It should be underlined that people who have disorders in their sensory systems also have the rights to be part of society and have the same rights in society as everyone else.

Adult Education and Inclusivity

In the UNESCO’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which aspires to eradicate poverty by 2030, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 on Education was recognized by the international community as “essential for the success of all 17 SDGs” (UNESCO, 2018). Inclusivity, defined as the intention or policy of including people who are otherwise excluded or marginalised is emphasized alongside equity in SDG 4, specifically in UNESCO’s Education 2030 Framework for Action as the foundations for quality education.

Contemporary education, the world of work, and career guidance and counseling as well, recognize different starting points, strengths and resources for different groups of people. As practitioners in these areas, it is evident that some clients have different problems to access the world of work and education. For example, some of them might have problems with physical or mental health or they are living in deprived and/or violent environment. We recognize that working with people from vulnerable groups requires specific education and specific programs of work. In the next lines we will present the key points that should be conisdered when it comes to planning and delivering career guidance services for adults from vulnerable groups.
