Trento - ESF

Programme description

ESF funding in the Autonoma di Trento region supports higher employment for young people, women and disadvantaged groups to promote social inclusion and growth.

The programme supports Italian and EU priorities for socially inclusive employment, education and training, and promotes smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

The OP, worth just under EUR 54 million, is 50% co-funded from the EU budget. Its priorities are as follows:

  • Over one-third of the budget is earmarked for improving access to employment, with a focus on reducing youth and female unemployment. Jobseekers and inactive people will receive support in finding work, while all age groups will have equal access to lifelong learning to increase their job-related skills and adaptability.
  • Actions for more active participation in society and improved social services will receive 20% of funds. Measures will promote gender equality in all areas, particularly in work-life balance, where improved childcare for 0-3 year-olds will support women who wish to work. Further measures will help disadvantaged people access the job market, especially people with disabilities.
  • A further two-fifths of the programme will focus on education and training. A key goal will be to reduce early school leaving so that students have a strong foundation for work and future training. The programme will also improve equal access to lifelong learning, keeping workers’ knowledge and skills up to date with the needs of the region’s job market.

Another part of the budget is foreseen to strengthen institutional capacity and capacity building for all stakeholders.

Projects funded under this programme will support 6700 unemployed people, more than 300 people with disabilities and 470 other disadvantaged people, and provide training to 15 700 inactive people.
