ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the ageing workforce in Great Britain. It is stated that despite an ageing population, Great Britain still has a default retirement age of 65 and opportunities for older workers remain limited. According to a 2006 City & Guilds report, "Dormant Skills Untapped," from 2010 onwards the number of people reaching working age will begin to fall by 60,000 every year. Add projected increases in new jobs into the mix, and between 2010 and 2020 Great Britain will need to attract 2.1 million entrants to the adult workforce.
