Welcome to the Career Review support and resources library, where you’ll find a range of useful materials including the research from our pilot programme. These resources are designed for providers and researchers to support your own Career Review projects.

If you have any resources, research reports or websites you'd like us to include in our library, then please get in touch via our 'contact us' page.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development

The CIPD has a range of factsheets that are helpful to employers and employees, and information and resources for employers about managing an ageing workforce. There are other resources on the site about age discrimination and redundancy.

 

50plusworks

This website is maintained by TAEN and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), and is very useful for advisers or for others supporting people who are looking to find work or to progress at work. The first link takes you to a page about age discrimination, and the second to a comprehensive resource base including reports, articles and links to websites. It is still possible to link through this site to the excellent but now outdated Advice-Resources Guide.

 

The Age and Employment Network (TAEN)

TAEN works to promote an effective labour market that serves the needs of people in mid and later life, employers and the economy. This site provides information, case studies, factsheets and links. These include updated resources from the Challenging Age project, a Skills Assessment Tool for older workers, and hints and resources for mature jobseekers.

 

The National Careers Service

The National Careers Service is free to all adults, via a freephone telephone service 0800 100 900, by email or other web-based activities, or face to face at local offices. The website includes a Skills Health Check, a CV Builder and 750 Job Profiles. The NCS regional teams, and staff from the telephone channel, were partners in the Mid-life Career Review Project and tested a range of models.
