The project aims at facilitating the insertion on the labor market and into active life of a number of 1,050 unemployed, young unemployed, long-term unemployed and over 45 year-old unemployed from the regions South-Muntenia and South- West, within the next three years. The unemployed persons will be able to benefit from training and re-training programs selected depending on the labor market's evolution in the targeted regions. 238 persons from the target group will benefit, apart from basic professional training also of specific training regarding the introduction into using IT instruments.

During the three years of project implementation 3 studies will be carried out for identifying the training needs in the targeted regions. 

Depending on the needs identified, 92 professional training programs will be organized, the objective being for 25% of the unemployed certified within the professional training programs to find themselves a job within the next 6 months after the course completion.

The training, re-training, improvement and specialization courses will focus on the professions identified in the studies for analysis of the jobs demands on the labor market. The courses will take place in the cities of Râmnicu Vâlcea, Călăraşi and Turnu Măgurele. The access to the training, re-training, improvement and specialization courses is FREE OF CHARGE due to the co-financing provided by the EUROPEAN SOCIAL FUND. 

Within the project, there will be developed the portal for information dissemination (www.calificare-someri.ro), which will represent an important communication media among the persons searching for a job and the potential employers from the public and private sector. The portal will present information on the unemployed (CVs, skills, courses, activities developed up to the moment of employment etc), but also the vacancies in the targeted regions. This way, the unemployed persons involved in the project will be able to apply for the vacant positions, while the employers will be able to select from an extensive database. The portal will also host sections dedicated to general information on the labor market and a forum where the interested persons will be able to get answers to questions related to professional guidance.

The project which on long term will generate an increase of the employment rate of the target group and a reduction of long term unemployment is complementary to the National Strategy for Employment and the Strategy for continuous professional training.

Through this project's implementation, reaching the general objective of POSDRU is promoted, by promoting active measures for employment and providing continuous training programs correlated with the labor market, addressed to the unemployed, and thus contributing to reducing the effects of the economic crisis, as well as reducing the unemployment in the targeted regions.
