Organization Details

Advantages of Age delivers impactful business courses aimed at helping those 50+, currently unemployed or economically inactive to discover new pathways to employment. 

Startup School for Seniors is our flagship programme, an eLearning course, delivered remotely over a two week or eight-week programme, aimed at supporting over 50s to take their first steps towards being self-employed.

This course is for those who:

• have a passion or idea they would like to turn into a business

• have been made redundant or are currently unemployed and considering their next step

• want to gain the skills necessary to get a new business off the ground

• would benefit from the support of others

Over 50s:

Impact Story

We have designed, facilitated and participated in many start-up programmes and these often fail participants, especially those in the intersections of age, gender, colour, ‘ability’ and wealth/class.

For an older person to make the successful transition to self-employment, they must first build up their confidence and resilience.  The course addresses many of the self-limiting beliefs preventing participants from taking the steps necessary to transition their career, whether that be into self-employment or otherwise.
