Piemonte - ESF

Programme description

Investment and growth are driving ESF funding in Piemonte, where the focus is on improving training, promoting social inclusion and finding a better work-life balance.

The priorities in the ESF operational programme (OP) for investment and growth in Piemonte will contribute to the EU’s 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable growth and to strengthening corporate social responsibility in the labour market, social policies, education and administrative capacity.

Piemonte’s OP is focusing on:

  • The unemployed, in particular those who have been out of work for a long period, will be encouraged to learn new skills and adapt to the changing needs of the labour market. By upgrading the training of socio-educational operators, improved childcare services and a better work-life balance can be achieved which should help women into employment. The programme is expected to reach out almost 50,400 unemployed and inactive people.
  • To tackle the problem of early school leavers and unemployed youth, the OP will assign resources either to develop new methods or better apply those already in use to keep students at school or in vocational training. Better qualifications and technical training, alongside funded apprenticeships and help for the self-employed are designed to ease the transition from education into the workplace. Planned measures are expected to involve 27,500 inactive people, of which most with little qualifications.
  • Around 20% of the total OP budget of over EUR 872 million has been allocated to promoting social inclusion through labour market participation by the most disadvantaged in society, targeting the participation of around 22,300 persons. Overall, the social economy will be strengthened by giving access to work for the most vulnerable, promoting actions to reduce poverty, and increasing socio-educational services in childcare and support for the elderly.
