Andalucía - ESF

Programme description

Under this programme, Andalusia will invest €1.19 billion, including €954.5 million from the EU budget, to foster job creation, especially for the vulnerable groups, support entrepreneurship, improve education and training and reduce early school leaving. It will also tackle social exclusion and poverty, and factors of inequality between men and women. More than two million people are expected to be reached by the programme.

The programme has a strong social cohesion dimension, with more than 25% of the funds being allocated to poverty reduction and active inclusion. More than 70,000 people at risk of social exclusion or living at the margin of society are expected to benefit. Additional social workers are expected to be employed to deliver integrated and individual pathways to the less well-off in order to improve their work-related and social integration.

Significant funding (48%) is allocated to better match the education and training systems to the labour market demands, and to reduce and prevent early school leaving for more than 1.1 million pupils in the primary and secondary grades. Better language skills for the most disadvantaged pupils and enhanced offers of professional training are amongst the deliverables of the programme.

Special emphasis will be put on active labour market policies to help unemployed people find a job, supporting in particular those having most difficulties in getting and keeping a job. Improved and personalised career guidance for job seekers, as well as better matching of workers skills with the needs of enterprises, are some of the main goals of the programme. 750,000 unemployed are expected to benefit, by increasing their possibility to find quality jobs.
