Frequently Asked Questions

What do employers need to know about training older workers?

Older workers, on average, stay in their jobs longer than younger ones, so employers have a longer period of time to see a return on the initial cost of training older staff. Further, many older workers are looking for training which builds on rather than replaces their existing skills sets.

How can the worker retraining program help you?

If you’re unemployed and want to train for a new career or improve your skills, the Worker Retraining Program may help you pay for tuition and related expenses. Find a participating school to learn more.

Are progressive employers embracing training for older workers?

It’s nuts, but employee training programs tend to ignore older workers. This is bad for business, bad for workers in their 50s and 60s and bad for the U.S. economy. Fortunately, though, a few progressive employers are embracing training for experienced workers.

Is refresher training for older workers worth it?

In many cases, refresher training can pay dividends in terms of improving the productivity of experienced staff. Second, older workers may not have the accreditation to take on new roles which bring opportunities to train.
