Marketing Text Labour market reintegration with network-building and community approach.
Summary The aim of the „Motivation for the elderly unemployed project” is to transmit to Hungarian and Romanian social and employment professionals such a method, which effectively help their work with the target group.
In the first phase of th project, the trainers of the Dutch partner (Stavoor) transmit the method to Hungarian and Romanian trainers. For the sake of adaptation and experimentation of the method, the trainers try out the training with pilot groups of 45+ long term unemployed people. After the summation of results, the trainers transmit the method to the „consultants” (social professionals working with 45+ long term unemployed), who organize groups in their own towns/villages, and execute the training and network building mediation. The training material of the project will be published by the Department of Sociology and Social Policy of the University of Debrecen in form of book and CD-ROM.
The main applicant of the project is the University of Debrecen. The method will be transmitted to the trainers by Stavoor Opleidingen. The trainers and the social professionals (consultants) will be recruited by Babes-Bolyai University, Family Help Centre of Debrecen City of County Rank, and North Great Plain Regional Labour Centre. These institutes will ba also responsible for executing the pilot training, the consultants’ training and organising groups for long term unemployed. The execution of the project will be supported by National Advisory Boards, external quality assurance manager, intranet fora, and supervisor.

Product information In the framework of the project, we transfer a training material from Holland (Mediation in Employment Orientation), which proved successful in Lithuania in a project financed by the Dutch government. The method has two pillars: first, the „consultants” as trainers, throughout the development of self-esteem and self-knowledge, motivate the target group members to start active job-seeking or own company. Second, parallel to this, the consultants, as network developing professionals, explore the scope of potential institutes and organisations which can help them in this process (labour system, chambers, NGOs, social partners, social system, local government, etc.) and build a network between them. In this, we also aim at promoting the cooperation between the institutions and by this, supporting the future introduction of integrated services.
