Project Title: Key Competencies for Re-integration to the Labour Market

Project Number:    2014-1-IE01-KA204-000354-KA2


arisThe ARIS project acknowledges that long-term unemployment is at record levels across the European Union and the task of finding new employment is extremely difficult as ‘old jobs’ now require ‘new’ skills. This project is about promoting and developing the concept of an ‘encore career’ where long-term unemployed persons in their prime working age (35 to 50 years old) can access re-training opportunities to add new skills that are appropriate to the knowledge intensive economy and help re-launch their careers at a higher skilled, more sustainable level.

Five key competency areas that will enable long-term unemployed to reintegrate back into the workforce include the following:

  1. Learning to learn
  2. Digital competence
  3. Social and civic competence
  4. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
  5. Cultural awareness and expression

The consortium is made up of the following partners:

  • Partner 1             LMETB                   Ireland
  • Partner 2             AESD                      Romania
  • Partner 3             DAFNI KEK           Greece
  • Partner 4             SYNTHESIS           Cyprus
  • Partner 5             IFI                             Spain
