Evidence of effectiveness
860,000 jobseekers are beneficiaries of a training in 2016 for an average duration of 4.7 months, compared to 680,000 in 2015. 59% secure a job after 6 months (long term contracts or short term contracts above 6 months, and 40% of the training courses lead to a certification). The total number of jobseekers trained and the share of long term unemployed and non-qualified jobseekers is increasing respectively by 98% and 64%. There are no unexpected benefits or costs.
Engagement of stakeholders
The programme will go on with a reinforced partnership between the PES and the Regional councils. Agreements at the regional level between the PES and the Regional Council allowed a shared strategy to buy training sessions through monthly meetings, and a follow-up realised by the Regional Council for Employment, Training and Orientation (CREFOP).
