Luxembourg - ESF

Programme description

The ESF invests in education, training and vocational training and aims to reduce overall unemployment rates, and particularly youth unemployment rates

The programme defines the priorities and objectives for the allocation of EUR 40 million (of which EUR 20 million comes from the EU budget), which will contribute to creating jobs and strengthening social cohesion in Luxembourg.

The programme's objective is to target the most disadvantaged sectors of the population, along with sectors which will have the biggest impact on employment growth in Luxembourg. It will be implemented in tandem with national investments in these areas.

The investment will focus on three areas:

  • The promotion of action to increase skills and knowledge among jobseekers, particularly those over the age of 45, in line with the future needs of the employment market, thus enhancing job market integration. Enhanced and sustainable job market integration for young people will also be targeted, particularly through the development and improvement of the implementation and monitoring of the Youth Guarantee.
  • Measures to reduce the overall unemployment rate, and particularly the youth unemployment rate, thus reinforcing social cohesion and inclusion. Concrete projects will be implemented to increase the engagement of marginalised people (who are alienated from the job market), particularly those receiving the guaranteed minimum income: job search support, training or other engagement measures to facilitate social inclusion.
  • Investing in education, training and vocational training for skills acquisition and life-long learning. The activities in this area aim to increase workers' skills and knowledge, particularly for those aged over 45, to increase employment rates for women and older people, and to improve the suitability of jobseekers' qualifications, including migrants.
