The ARIS project acknowledges that long-term unemployment is at record levels across the European Union, and that the task of finding a job 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 the age 35 to 50 year old bracket, can access re-training opportunities that add new skills that are in sync with todays' knowledge intensive economy, thus helping them to launch their careers at a higher-skilled, more sustainable level. 

5 Key competency areas that will enable long-term unemployed to reintegrate into the workforce include the following:

  •  Learning to learn
  •  Digital competence
  •  Social and civic competence
  •  Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
  •  Cultural awareness and expression
