It is widely recognised that older workers are less likely to gain access to job-related training than younger workers, This article reviews evidence on the extent of age-based training differentials in Australia and the main barriers that inhibit older workers from accessing training. It is concluded that governments in Australia need to do far more to ensure that older workers are not denied access to training opportunities.
