This document has been created to enable organisations to develop a programme for citizens over the age of 50, known as Senior Plus. The intervention is intended to support the evidencing and development of competences and the search for employment, both paid and unpaid. The document provides a model process for the recruitment and training of Senior Plus Trainer-advisors and the Programme they will run. The Senior Plus Programme includes two key elements: Training and volunteering. The training is described in detail in this document and includes both groupwork and one-to-one sessions. The volunteering includes opportunities for short term or long term volunteering and volunteering abroad. A Volunteering handbook has been produced to support this part of the programme. The whole Senior Plus programme has been developed by a partnership of six organisations based in France, Italy, Latvia, Portugal and the UK. It was funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union. The materials in this document were developed and tested in an international training the trainers course in Italy in July 2016.
