Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved with Age & Opportunity:

Invitation to tender for the Age & Opportunity Active Programme Trainer Panel

We are seeking tenders from suitably qualified individuals to join a panel of trainers who will, when required, deliver our Active workshops and initiatives to groups of people who are mainly 50 years or over.

Since March 2020 all delivery has taken place online. This will continue until it is safe to engage with older people in-person and we envisage a blended version of workshop delivery into the future. Being accepted onto the panel does not guarantee that you will be offered work by Age & Opportunity, however, when we need trainers it will be offered to panel members only.

Successful panel members will receive a full induction from our Active programme team so that they are acquainted with workshop objectives and content.

Closing date: 12 noon on Thursday the 18th of November 2021.

Full details available here.
