After the 3-day training course in Porto/Matosinhos the practical phase has now started.
The practical phase consists of two stages:
First stage: The 15 course participants apply and transfer their learning by training other ‘facilitators’, i.e. HR managers, career coaches, line managers etc,. in the SASSI Working On approach and techniques.
Second stage: The course participants and the newly trained ‘facilitators’ will each provide later-life career guidance to older workers (aged 50+) – including unretirees, employees, job seekers etc. – thereby applying their learning and testing the process/techniques. Continue reading

The VALLEY course in Timisoara was a wonderful experience!
With 13 participants – which turned out to be a very lucky number (we had no doubts) – the course was a real success. Each participant brought in a specific piece of expertise and made the course become a truly European learning experience
