If you want to show older people how to use the internet for the first time, or help someone to improve their skills, this guide, produced by the Centre for Ageing Better and the Good Things foundation, is for you.

It doesn’t matter if you’re helping a friend or family member, or someone you support as part of your job or volunteering role. Inside, you’ll find lots of tips on how to get started.

There’s also advice if you’re interested in setting up long-term learning for a group of older people. You don’t need to be a computer expert to be able to provide good help. If you feel confident using the internet by yourself, you know enough.

This is a new BETA service provided by the National Careers Service.

Take this assessment to find out what types of jobs might suit you, for example, “retail and sales”.

Answer a few more questions to find out what specific job roles might suit you, for example, “florist”.

This could take 5 to 10 minutes. It will take longer if you’re using assistive technologies, for example, a screen reader or screen magnifier.

You can save your assessment if you want to complete it later, or look at your results again another time.

Free Handbook – “Enhancing the Quality of Career Guidance” by Ronald Sultana
March 6, 2019
0

This Handbook is one of the products of the MYFUTURE Erasmus+ project. It offers educational leaders and career guidance staff practical ways for improving the quality of career guidance products and services in their secondary schools (ages 11-16), with a special focus on career education.

The goal of the Handbook, and the frameworks, resources and tools it provides, are meant to be useful in catering more effectively for all students. However, a special emphasis is placed on the needs of those who, for different reasons, have disengaged from formal learning, or are in danger of doing so. Career guidance is one of the ways we have of re-igniting motivation in such students, especially when the service offered by the school is robust and fit for purpose.
