STRIDE for Older Workers

Supporting older workers to achieve sustainable employment

Skills Training Results in Directed Education / Employment (STRIDE)

We support older workers to achieve sustainable employment through skills training and employment supports.

Older workers have a wealth of knowledge and experience; STRIDE helps them gain valuable skill enhancement through workshops and work experience leading to sustainable employment.
