Free Career advice for Over-45s From 2019. People aged over 45 can receive free career advice from 2019 onwards.
That is what the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment announces on Monday.
Previously, only specific professional groups could make use of such a subsidy, such as an ambulance staff, cleaners and teachers.
“The people who used it before were positive”, states Minister of Social Affairs Wouter Koulmees.
“But I think many more people can benefit from it, so I decided that all over-45s are eligible.”
For this reason, Koolmees has made an additional 2.6 million pounds available for the plan,
which means that a total of 15 million pounds is available for career advice for people aged 45 and over.
