People are living longer these days, and the challenge for our seniors is to stay healthy, engaged, and active. This also means that employers need staff with an in-depth understanding of ageing to support the growing demands and expectations of this sector.  Service providers and caregivers can play a crucial role in helping seniors age confidently by developing exciting programmes, initiatives and services to assist their physical, cognitive and socio-emotional well-being. However, changing jobs and going into a different sector can be a daunting transition. What are the challenges faced by mid-career switchers in this sector? Where can one go to seek knowledge and skillsets to be ready for the industry? 

In this webinar, get ready to learn from the experienced speakers as they share tips for job seekers and mid-career switchers to adapt to the changing needs of the ageing sector.  Find out how to enhance your job prospects in the growing ageing sector via upskilling and reskilling using microlearning, short and diploma courses.
