A big portion of the adult marginalized population has never seen their competences certified due to not completion of any kind of school. As adults, former drop outs, people with learning disabilities, migrants they find themselves missing these recognized skills, not able to attend standard adult training, thus reducing the already scarce chances to access the labour market and increasing their social exclusion.
