On 11./12.11.2015 the SASSI consortium met in Matosinhos, Portugal for the first partner meeting. The meeting aimed to set the ground for the future project develoment works.
SASSI aims to support age-responsive approaches to continuous professional development (CPD) for older learners and workers. As a first step the partners defined the target markets in more detail. It was agreed that in SASSI with older learners and workers we refer to people aged 50+ who are job seekers/ career changers and/or those who wish to remain in work (either because they want to keep working past retirement age, or because they have to work for longer as a result of the raising of the pension age. The primary target markets are trainers working with people aged 50+: both vocational and adult education trainers for CPD (both in and out of the workplace) and employability as well as employers (HR managers + line managers) for workplace CPD and updating.
SASSI stands for Silver Age, Silver SAge Initiative and is a new EU-funded project in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme. SASSI aims to support age-sensitive approaches to continuous professional development for older learners and workers.
