The question ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ might be most frequently asked by parents to their children, or school teachers to their charges. But what about the older generation?
New research has revealed that nearly half of Britons believe they are ‘too old’ to achieve their career dreams. The research, commissioned by Future Learn found that just one in four of us will achieve our career dreams by the time we retire.
Yet the older generation buck the trend: 63 per cent of those aged 55 to 64, and 31 per cent of over 65s are actively chasing after their career goals.
