A strategy for success

A strategy for success
Description

In its 'Strategy for Success' project, the Polish district of Rybnik is targeting over 5 000 unemployed fellow citizens with opportunities to get a job or find a better job. The project focuses in particular on disadvantaged groups; including single parents, older job-seekers, the long-term unemployed, ex-offenders and people with disabilities. In the largest-scale initiative the district labour office has ever run, an attractive package of vocational courses, traineeships, job placements and financial aid for new, small businesses was put together.

Results

As a result, over 1 100 people – more than one in five of the unemployed population – have been helped to get jobs and improve their job prospects, and 99 of them have realised their ambitions of launching their own businesses.
