    Working longer implies adaptation and change. Employees are expected to update their skills throughout their entire working life. Everyone involved in this lifelong learning scenario requires not only goodwill and the capacity to adjust but the availability of sufficient learning possibilities as well.

Companies that want to implement or enhance a positive learning climate in their organisation must take 5 major conditions into account: accessibility, support, autonomy, sense of connection, and transfer. These conditions apply to both formal and informal learning.

The training does, however, often fail in its purpose because it is not adapted to the specific expectations and needs of this target group. This has become apparent from research conducted by Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School together with the Belgian Federal Public Service Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue and the European Social Fund (ESF) into specific training expectations among the over-45s.
