Free career advice for people over 45 in education
Do you work in education and are you 45 or older? Then you can make use of a temporary subsidy scheme from the Ministry of Social Affairs. With the grant you can immerse yourself in your career for free with the help of a professional career advisor. Register quickly, the number of places is limited.
The scheme is intended for all employees, such as teachers, janitors, educational supporters and school leaders, in primary, secondary, secondary, higher vocational and university education aged 45 or older with a contract for at least 12 hours per week.
Together with a career advisor, you will think about your career and you will have conversations about opportunities, your qualities and needs, competencies, the future possibilities of your job and how you can keep working as well as possible. The career advisor draws up a personal development plan with you, containing concrete actions for the future.
De AOb supports this scheme, because it contributes to the sustainable employability of teaching staff.
The subsidies are available until January 10, 2020. The development advice is confidential and is not shared with the employer. The career advisor applies for the subsidy, maximum 600 euros, so that it costs you nothing. Interested? You can register online via this form of SWA HR Services, the AOb and FNV together.
The Ministry of Social Affairs has a different arrangement for managers. Do you work in education as a manager and do you want to learn how to have a good career interview? Then you can follow a training development advice within the subsidy scheme. Managers cannot register through the SWA HR office, but must look for a career advisor themselves. More information about this and the subsidy for managers can be found in this brochure from the ministry.
