Description of programme
"ROP Baden-Württemberg ESF"

The Operational Programme (OP) for Baden-Württemberg aims at getting  as many people  into work as possible, including the long-term unemployed and those who have been inactive for some time. Measures are also planned to boost education and address poverty and social exclusion.

The OP focuses on three priority axes:

  • Close  to half of the funding (46 %) will be dedicated to projects for sustainable and high-quality jobs and mobility and will benefit some 90 000 people. This includes  bringing the long-term unemployed into the labour market, bringing young jobseekers into vocational training and boosting the skills of SME employees. Novel approaches, such as part-time apprenticeships, will be funded.
  • Combating poverty and promoting social inclusion are priorities. , Funding will help those with fewer opportunities and less qualifications  to find their feet, acquire relevant qualifications and enter the labour market. Some 15 000 people are expected to benefit from measures tailored to their personal circumstances by local and municipal projects.
  • People from all walks of life and all age groups are targeted in the third priority – education. Around 18 000 people are expected to benefit from projects on lifelong learning for older people and workers and guidance to help school-leavers to find work or training opportunities. Personal coaching measures will help to prevent school dropouts, while higher education institutions, such as universities, will develop new, work-related programmes. Moreover, female university researchers will get support in order to boost gender equality in higher education.

Baden-Württemberg has identified a future lack of skilled labour and growing skill mismatches as challenges to be addressed in order to maintain the region’s strong economic performance. The OP is designed to create the opportunities to meet these challenges.
