TAEN and Shaw Trust

The national employment, learning and skills charity, Shaw Trust, has acquired the the brand and intellectual property of TAEN. 

The move by Shaw Trust comes as part of a strategic decision to support more older people, both jobseekers and those already in jobs, who face barriers and challenges to working longer.

50+ Lives: Video Case Studies

As part of its European Social Fund Technical Assistance Project, TAEN commissioned a series of videos in which older workers relate their individual experiences. The case studies focus on three key themes relating to extended working lives: Still Working, Seeking Work and Active Ageing. 

The videos feature five individual case studies of people who are still working and one looks at extended working lives from a range of cultural perspectives. They are available on the ESF Media Centre.
