Public Consultation on Evaluation of ESF support to education and training

Public Consultation on Evaluation of ESF support to education and training

The Commission wishes to know citizens’ and stakeholders’ opinion on the activities carried out since 2014 by the EU with its European Social Fund in order to support education and training. The information collected will be used in assessing what has been achieved during the 2014-2018 period. It will also help the Commission to draw lessons on how to reinforce this support in the future, making it more effective and focused.

Amongst other subjects, the evaluation will assess the success of EU initiatives for reducing and preventing early school leaving, promoting equal access to education and lifelong learning for all, supporting vocational training and improving the quality, efficiency and access to university education. It will also identify which type of support has been the most effective.

All citizens and organisations are invited to contribute to this consultation.
Contributions are particularly sought from:

• Citizens whether or not they are receiving or have received support from the European Social Fund in the area of education and training ;

• Member States and organisations involved in the management of European Social Fund such as managing authorities, intermediate bodies, project implementers, members of monitoring committees;

• Organisations involved in the delivery of European Social Fund operations as beneficiaries or project partners: public bodies, education institutions, NGOs, municipalities;

• Any organization or citizen having a particular expertise in the area of education and training.

The consultation is available here.

   This consultation will run until 24 February 2020.
