Pre-Retirement Workshop
Professional Development Programme

Participants: Aimed at staff who are thinking about / planning to retire within the next one to two years.

Pre-requisites: The event covers all aspects of planning for your retirement, not just financial.

The decision when to retire is a significant personal decision and these days when we retire we hopefully have many years of active life ahead of us. It's a huge opportunity. However the change from a work situation, to one where there is no structure and nobody telling us what to do, can be one of the biggest changes of our lives.

The purpose of this event is to encourage you to think seriously about all aspects of your retirement or partial retirement and will include: financial matters, legal issues, lifestyle changes and the ways to plan for the future.

Anticipated learning outcomes:
The key benefit is that the workshop isn't just about passing information. The exercises, discussions and networking elements will assist in ascertaining what is important to you personally and to identify the actions to help with your retirement.

Preparation: Those selected for the workshop will be sent an email covering the relevant information.
