CAEL identifies opportunities for older adults to build on their skills and experience to secure meaningful work and attain economic security.
Older workers can be among the workforce’s most experienced, skillful and reliable contributors. As they approach the traditional retirement age, older adults may look for ways to continue working; some for financial need and others to remain engaged and to continue to contribute to the betterment of society. Many older adults may seek to work and contribute in new areas.
The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) helps businesses, higher education, and the public workforce system identify and prepare older workers for new job opportunities that meet their needs and leverage the skills and experience they have gained from both their professional and personal lives.
CAEL helps older workers identify what they need to prepare for this new stage of their work life and helps organizations create roles that both address emerging needs and also offer the flexibility that many seek.
