Chapter in Cedefop publication 'Working and ageing: Emerging theories and empirical perspectives' which reports findings from a research project which investigated the relationship between involvement in learning and the retention of workers in the labour market in the East Midlands (UK). The focus of the research was on employers, their knowledge and understanding of an ageing workforce and their responses, in particular whether learning formed part of the response.
