RREUSE responds to an evaluation of ESF to support education and training

23rd February 2020 | Publications

RREUSE responded to a recent call for the evaluation of the ESF in supporting education and training (from the period 2014-2018). A call was put out for members to respond before the closing date of 24.02.20.

RREUSE welcomes the opportunity to evaluate support to education and training by the European Social Fund (ESF) from the period of 2014 to 2018. In order to further capitalise future ESF+ investments in education, lessons and observations from the past are found below (particular focus on vocational education and training). Across the wider RREUSE membership, there is much work being done to highlight the potential of circular jobs and ‘green skills’ as well as interest in formalising qualifications linked to circular skills (for less well known skills). The desire to recognise informal skills and properly integrate them into further education programmes noteworthy.
