Schools Staff Pre-Retirement Courses

Schools Staff Pre-Retirement Courses

This briefing is delivered by the Schools HR Team along with other specialist speakers. It is designed for all staff (teachers and support staff) in schools who are approaching retirement, or considering retirement within the next 5 years. Although there is never a right or wrong time to go on a pre-retirement briefing, as each individual approaches their retirement planning differently.

It is also possible for the School to purchase an additional place on the course to enable the staff member to bring along a partner, as retirement planning often involves them too.

The following issues will be addressed on the briefings:

  • Ensuring financial security for retirement
  • Tax efficient savings and investments
  • Money management
  • Investment for growth/Income
  • State Retirement and other Benefits
  • Occupational Pension Benefits (Teachers Pension Scheme and Local Government Pension Scheme)
  • Relationships and Health Issues

The briefing provide answers to many questions about retirement, but also makes delegates aware of issues they need to consider in drawing up an effective retirement plan. As the briefing is delivered by the Schools HR Team, delegates will meet staff who can assist through retirement planning until retirement day.

This is the only LCC-delivered pre-retirement briefing specifically aimed at all school staff, including teachers and support staff.
