Mid-life Career Review Project

TAEN is a partner contributing to the Mid-life Career Review project evaluating career review models for people with some 20 years of working life ahead of them.  The project is being undertaken by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) and supported by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. 

As part of its contribution, TAEN has revised, updated and re-issued a number of publications aimed at career guidance providers and practitioners supporting people both in mid and later life.

See our Career Guidance section to view and download copies of these publications.
