SASSI – Post-course activities

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

SASSI Working On – Successful training

We had great days in Porto/Matosinhos. The course offered a comprehensive overview of approaches, tools, and instruments that can be used in career review, management and guidance for older workers.

The following quotation summarises very nicely the general mood after the course:

“Before joining the workshop in Matosinhos I knew why planning of career guidance and management should be age-sensitive, because I worked with a wide range of people, younger and older persons. I reflected on myself and was interested in the topic. Until then I was aware of age-sensitive strengths and threats. During the workshop we received detailed background information and learned how to work with specific methods and tools. I’m now looking forward to using this tools and to work with people, so that I can enhance my competence in the field of planning and preparing career guidance and career management support.”

Now all course participants will plan and implement a learning project to apply and transfer the SASSI Working On approach and techniques in their work.
