WLAs have been involved in a Mid-Life Career Review Project to help people think about themselves, jobs and careers in mid-life and have carried out mid-life reviews with colleagues.
How did WLAs carry out mid-life reviews?
WLAs used a questionnaire to find out mid-life issues of interest to colleagues (you can download this at the bottom of this page).
Some WLAs carried out reviews involving one-to-one discussions/signposting to useful organisations (you can download info on useful organisations/links/resources at the bottom of this page).
Some WLAs brought in speakers to run group sessions on mid-life issues (eg careers, finance, health & well-being).
For info – Some of the WLAs/WLA staff involved in the project have now agreed to become Mid-Life Champions to offer support to others who may want to carry out mid-life reviews in their workplaces. You can contact them for more info …
