about: The ARIS project acknowledged that long-term unemployment had been at record levels across the European Union and the task of finding new employment was extremely difficult as ‘old jobs’ required ‘new’ skills. This project was 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 – could 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.
The Five Key areas that would enable the long-term unemployed to reintegrate back into the workforce included the following: learning to learn, digital competence, social and civic competence, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, cultural awareness and expression
The coordinators were LMETH from Ireland and the partners hailed from Malta, Spain, Cyprus, Greece and Romania. The duration of the project was 24 months.
