How does a Course run?

What subjects are covered?
Health/Diet/Fitness, Finance, Leisure, Stress Management, Security/Safety, Legal Advice/Making a Will, New Interests, Consumer Rights, Income Tax, Pensions & Benefits.
How often do courses run?
Pre-Retirement Courses run throughout the year and usually once a month. Mid-Life Courses and Peace of Mind Seminars are held once a year, usually in Spring and Autumn. In-House courses are held at the Company’s request.
Where are your courses held?

For large firms and organisations they are held on the employers’ premises.
Can my spouse/partner accompany me on the course?
Yes. We encourage husbands/ wives/partners to attend together as Retirement affects both parties.
I work in the textile industry and have not been invited to attend a course.
KFAT are keen to send people on our courses and have a clause in the Contract of Employment which entitles people to attend. Contact your HR Dept. and ask about attendance. OR ring the NDPRC for an Information Pack so you can discuss this with your employer.
Some of my Colleagues went on a Mid-Life Seminar. When should I go on one?
If you are aged 35-45 you really ought to think about planning now to ensure you have adquate pension provision for when it’s your time to retire. All the details are on the Link on the Home Page for Mid-Life Courses.
My employer is in the process of making quite a few of us redundant. What shall I do?
Ask them to contact NDPRC for details of a One-day “In-House” Redundancy Course. Expert speakers will be present on site to discuss any concerns. See the link to prices for full details of the cost of a One day course on site.

I’m a newly appointed HR Manager and cannot find the file for Retirement provision for my staff or, indeed, am not sure whether my Company gets involved. What should I do?
Don’t worry, contact NDPRC for an Information Pack which will include all the details. NDPRC will then get your employee on the next suitable course. They will do all the admin. work involved. All they need from you is the name of the employee, job title, age and retirement date.
I retire next week. Am I too late to attend?
No. People have attended who have been retired a few weeks and still found it beneficial. However, we do recommend attendance 3 – 5 years before retirement to ensure adequate planning.
My colleague went on one of your courses a few years ago. Now it’s my time to retire, but I haven’t been invited.
