ESF and YEI support to Youth Employment, including Youth Entrepreneurship

  1. 1. ESF and YEI support to youth employment, including youth entrepreneurship Resa Koleva, DG EMPL Unit E1 Brussels, 22 September 2014
  2. 2. Social Europe European Social Fund 2014-20 support to youth: A dedicated investment priority for young people: Sustainable integration of young people in particular those not in employment, education or training, including young people at risk of social exclusion and young people from marginalised communities, into the labour market, including through the implementation of the Youth Guarantee. But also other investment priorities relevant for youth measures: Reducing and preventing early school-leaving and promoting equal access to good quality early-childhood, primary and secondary education […]; Enhancing equal access to lifelong learning […], upgrading the knowledge, skills and competences of the workforce […] Access to employment, active inclusion, etc. ESF remains the biggest EU fund to support human capital investment.
  3. 3. Social Europe Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) •New instrument established in the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF 2014-20), integrated entirely into the ESF legal framework. •EUR 6 billion for the period 2014-2020: EUR 3 billion from the ESF + EUR 3 billion from a specific 'youth employment' budget line •Open to all NUTS2 regions with levels of youth unemployment (15- 24 age group) above 25% (in 2012) => 20 MS are eligible. •In addition to ESF (European Social Fund) resources, which support youth employment in ALL MS and regions •YEI will be spent faster than the ESF, until end-2018 (i.e. it is "frontloaded"). The aim is to address the problem quickly.
  4. 4. Social Europe YEI: target group and examples of types of actions YEI will target individuals only (not systems reforms). Target group: NEETs aged up to 25, or optionally for MS – up to 30 years, who must be residing in the eligible regions and can be: - inactive or unemployed (including long-term) - registered or not as job seekers Possible actions: provision of traineeships and apprenticeships; first job experience; hiring incentives for employers to recruit youngsters (e.g. limited subsidising of the salary or social security contribution); job and training mobility measures; start-up support for young entrepreneurs; vocational education and training leading to a qualification; where relevant for early school leavers - second chance programmes. Aim: deliver these actions as part of integrated pathways and based on the individuals' needs/ individual actions plans.
