Berufliche Beratung Älterer

Edited By Bernd-Joachim Ertelt and Michael Scharpf

Die Bedeutung beruflicher Beratung Älterer wird aus individueller, arbeitsmarktbezogener und gesellschaftlicher Sicht gegenwärtig in allen einschlägigen nationalen und internationalen Dokumenten betont. Allerdings fehlt bislang eine systematische, wissenschaftsbasierte und praxisrelevante Auseinandersetzung mit den sich daraus ergebenden Anforderungen für Beratungsfachkräfte und Institutionen. Dieser Band beinhaltet 14 Artikel aus dem In- und Ausland zur beruflichen Beratung Älterer und weist Facetten des aktuellen Forschungs- und Entwicklungsstandes auf. Die Beiträge zur angewandten Beratungsforschung, Qualifizierung der Beratungsfachkräfte und zu guten Praxisbeispielen ermöglichen eine Betrachtung der Thematik aus verschiedenen Perspektiven.

Extending working lives: progression in late careers

Abstract: This chapter considers the nature of movement and personal change at the later stage of careers, focusing on several involved aspects. The form of progression differs from the ambitious striving of early careers. Consequently, we need to differentiate career support for older workers from that offered to entrants of the workforce.

Movement and personal change continue, but the form of progression differs from the ambitious striving more typical of early career, suggesting that we should differentiate career support for older workers from that offered to entrants to the workforce. Such a distinction would require career practitioners to think and to work differently with their older clients.
