United Kingdom: Age Guide for Employers in Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies

SEMTA, the Sector Skills Council for science, engineering and manufacturing technologies, has produced a booklet in collaboration with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to guide and advise manufacturing organizations on how to comply with age discrimination regulation as well as how to ensure an age diverse workforce that will nurture future growth.

The booklet ("Age isn't an issue) provides guidance on a range of workforce issues including recruitment, development, flexible working, and retirement. Among other things, the guide encourages not only equality for job applications and opportunities within the workplace but also encourages employers to be even handed in the way they make vocational training, flexible working, and continuous professional development available.
