Preparation for Retirement

Pre Retirement

If you are approaching retirement the WEA Preparation for Retirement (PRE) course can help ease the transition, by enabling you to explore changes which will take place.  The course will give you the chance to think about, adjust and plan for the future, in a supportive environment.  It’s open to workers at all levels in all lines of work and suits people who are planning to retire within the next two years.

The course is very informal and delivered at a relaxed pace by our experienced tutors and includes guest speakers, study visits and group discussions.  Meeting with others in a similar situation, sharing ideas and experiences, can greatly enhance the learning experience for everyone and increase your confidence.
