The Mid-life Career Review on XtLearn has been created by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) to disseminate the lessons and resources from the Mid-life Career Review (MLCR) project to careers guidance practitioners who are or will be offering career reviews.
What is a Mid-life Career Review?
A ‘mid-life career review’ is an approach to deliver holistic careers guidance to people in their mid-life (age 45 and over). The Mid-life Career Review project, which is led by NIACE, developed and tested different models of career review for people in this group. Seventeen pilot partners delivered reviews to over 3000 clients aged from 45 to 65. Partners included National Careers Service providers, learning providers and voluntary organisations, as well as Workplace Learning Advocates, Union Learning Reps and Community Learning Champions.
Mid-life Career Review on XtLearn.net
Through the Mid-life Career Review project, partners found and developed a range of materials for careers guidance practitioners to use with this age group. The MLCR on XtLearn gathers and organises these resources into collections which can be shared amongst practitioners and adapted to suit the situation and the individual undergoing a review. The collections are arranged under the several pages/headings. Click the links on the left to view them.
There are over a hundred resources available, and these are arranged into convenient collections. Some resources are links to websites while others are PDFs or Word documents. Some resources can be found in more than one collection. If you would prefer to look at all the resources in one list then click on All Resources.
Collections can be passed to colleagues via email, embedded into a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), posted on Facebook or published on a range of other social media platforms.
If you have any queries about the MLCR XtLearn or have any resources you would like to share on the platform then please contact Ljaja Sterland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
