What will SASSI do
The SASSI project will focus on the empowerment of the aging workforce. It aims to develop and pilot a range of innovative training strategies and tools that can be successfully applied in both Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programmes for employees aged 50+ and in Vocational Education programmes aimed at supporting older learners who wish to remain in work, are active job seekers or are about to embark on Third Age Careers.

These practical tools, which will include a process for assessing and validating newly gained informal competences, will be made available through a web-based Hub and Trainer Community.

The strategies, tools and techniques will be developed from the needs identified in a comprehensive Needs Analysis which will include research into how older people learn, and how employers envisage meeting the development needs of an ageing and older workforce.
