Helping Displaced Older Workers Get Back into Employment: Good Practice Guide
Callahan, Victor J.; Bowman, Kaye
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This good practice guide is based on the report "Industry Restructuring and Job Loss: Helping Older Workers Get Back into Employment" by Victor J. Callan and Kaye Bowman. The aim of the research was to identify evidence-based practices that led to successful skills transfer, re-skilling, training and the attainment of new jobs for older workers displaced from often lower-skilled jobs in the manufacturing industries. This guide informs employers, employment placement agencies and related support services, training providers and overall coordinating agencies in the design of programs that help displaced older workers find new jobs. Based on a review of past research and four Australian case studies, Callan and Bowman investigated the type and impact of the approaches used to assist displaced older workers in regions where industry restructuring has occurred.[For the research report: "Industry Restructuring and Job Loss: Helping Older Workers Get Back into Employment. Research Report" see ED56122.]
