This chapter considers an important yet neglected area within this debate — that of training and lifelong training. It reviews the recent efforts to support and promote the wider incorporation of training within the employment sphere, focusing on the range of training providers. It notes that the recently completed work (Admasachew et al, 2005) has also highlighted the lack of attention most employers give to this area of career development for the 50+ cohort. It continues with an incisive assessment of the role age legislation has on current understandings. It puts emphasis on the chapter's statement, ‘Ageing societies need to ensure that their oldest workers have the skills and training necessary for them to participate in employment’.

Keywords:   lifelong training, training providers, career development, age legislation, employment
