ESF Hessen
Type of Fund Structural Fund
Description of programme
"ESF Hessen"
The main focus of Hessen’s ESF operational programme is to combat poverty and social exclusion. The two Thematic Priorities are:
  • TO10 Education and Training: about 6000 young people with special needs will receive personal coaching in order to prevent early-school-leaving. Some 6000 high school students and 2200 apprentices will be offered career guidance sessions, as will SME employees and those with lower qualifications. Measures will encourage smaller companies to take on more apprentices. In addition, higher education institutes will receive funding to develop pilot programmes that broaden access to tertiary education, boost gender equality and help universities develop their international relations.
  • TO9 Social Inclusion: this will involve helping those at the margins of ‘normal society’ in order to stabilise their lives, help them obtain qualifications and join the mainstream. The long-term unemployed, prisoners seeking to reintegrate, or students finding it difficult to move on are examples of the target groups. ESF projects will benefit 60 000 unemployed and disadvantaged people by offering made-to-measure solutions that meet local needs. In addition, 10 000 young people will be helped to make the important transition from school and study into the world of work.
