Centre for Lifelong Learning was founded on 17.06.2010 at the Faculty of Economics University of Kragujevac within the TEMPUS project “Development of the Lifelong Learning Framework in Serbia”. As the result of the project “Student Counselling and Career Guidance“ within Democracy Outreach Programme, funded by the Embassy of USA in Serbia, it expanded its activities to student counselling and career guidance. Centre for Lifelong Learning, Student Counselling and Career Development has the aim to make higher education more accessible to young people, as well as to help students gain knowledge and skills necessary for their involvement in business practice. Specific goals of the Centre are: to help students overcome barriers to fulfil their assignments, gain new knowledge and develop their expertise and practical skills; to make higher education more accessible to young people with disability; to link former students with Faculty/University; to allow gaining of general knowledge that is not tightly connected to a certain professional field, but that is specific and directly applicable at work place; to raise awareness about the importance of free and unobstructed access to higher education for everyone.
