So, I am 40…

Some people believe that 40 is the new 30 and when life truly begins!

To be honest, when I reached that milestone and received a nice reminder from the government (i.e. a Letter to inform me I am now covered under ElderShield), I was not celebrating. Would you be?

Then it got me thinking. Let’s not only look at the negative side of things. At 40, I am now eligible for the Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy (MCES)! This newfound opportunity for upgrading and upskilling gave me a new avenue for adventure – an educational one. Imagine attending so many classes and courses, learning so many new skills, paying only a small fraction of the total fees. Yes! I mean with the MCES, I can get 90% funding support for all eligible courses. I pay only 10% of the fees!

Do you know that there is a skill that we all have?

This skill comes naturally to us as we age.

In most situations, we are valued for having this skill.

Do you know what that skill is?


Most of us will never be Counsellors and that’s a fact. Not all of us would be able to do this job full-time. It takes too much out of us. We can’t handle this job full-time. But, we can do it part-time in our various roles; at work, at home and at play.

With knowledge comes understanding and confidence. Learning a course that teaches you the skillsets of how you can be a Counsellor, will enable you to give guidance and advice to your colleagues, friends and loved ones with confidence.

The Para-Counselling (WSQ) is that course. This course teaches you the skillsets you need to be a Para-Counsellor. If you are 40 and above, this course will be heavily subsidized to empower you with that knowledge and to feel respected and valued. Upon completing this course, you can enroll on the Specialist Diploma in Counseling Psychology. You even have the option to do a double diploma and also enroll on the Specialist Diploma in Social Welfare. The fees for these 2 programs after subsidies is unbelievable!


I am above 40.

I am like you.

If I can do this, so can you.
