NEW HORIZONS PROGRAMME

FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE TRANSITION

At asa we are committed to supporting you to successfully identify and achieve the next stage of your career.

Introduction

Planning for ‘retirement’ is more important today than it has ever been as people are now much healthier, more active and can expect to live much longer. This means that the potential for a whole new phase of life and opportunity opens up for them.

We recognise the term ‘retirement’ means different things to people.  Some may see it as an escape from full time employment, providing the opportunity for more leisure time; others may view it as a new challenge, a time to do some volunteering or stimulation through study. Privately, some may see it as a time of inactivity, under-stimulation and loss of status – something to fear.  One thing we may agree on is that retirement is changing in the traditional sense.  Retirement is a classic example of a lifestyle transition, a move from one stage to another

Our Approach

In order to plan for a lifestyle transition individuals need information, awareness, understanding and resilience.  The New Horizons programme is designed for individuals (plus partner/spouse) who are approaching or considering retirement within the next 12 months and will review the choices people face together with time for self-assessment and reflection.  The programme can include spouse/partner and will be delivered over 16 x hours of 1:1 bespoke coaching at a suitable location selected by the sponsoring organisation.
