Upskilling Career Guidance Professionals & Trainers -
Empowering Long-Term Unemployed Aging Adults


Empowering Long-Term Unemployed (LTU) Older Workers through Coaching and Personal Branding is an EU-funded project. It is running between September 2016 and January 2019 and is funded under the Erasmus+ programme for education and training. The project’s aim is to give older (aged 45 and over) people the opportunity to experience success through self-development, creative thinking and through exploring opportunities!


The project’s main products are handbooks, coaching workshops and training tools, to empower career guidance professionals to deliver targeted training and long-term unemployed aging adults to unlock their career potential, as employees or starting their own business.

HANDBOOK ON EMPLOYMENT STRATEGIES & TRAINING TOOLS TO MOTIVATE & ACTIVATE LONG_TERM UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE BACK TO WORK aimed at career advisors, guidance professionals, trainers and policy makers, and in three parts:

The Handbook will be available in English, Spanish, Greek and Italian. The handbook will be piloted in the project countries with the participation of guidance professionals, trainers as well as long-term unemployed older workers.


The project brings together a transnational consortium involving five experts in different fields from four EU countries (Spain, UK, Greece and Italy) mostly affected by long-term unemployment. The team has complementary experience and expertise in the fields of education and training, career guidance, social inclusion and labour integration, technical development of support tools, combining research with market and technical knowledge.

Partners are meeting regularly in different cities, hosted at the premises of the different partners. These include meetings and training in  Malaga,  Sheffield,  Madrid, Athens, Bologna and Malaga.


The Empowering LTU Older Workers project and European partners are open to collaboration and links with interested stakeholders across Europe and beyond!
