1.        Background

The European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) Programme 2021-2027 is co-funded by the European Union and will support investment in human resources in Malta. The ESF+ programme is envisaged to invest in four thematic priority areas with a total budget (EU+MT share) of some Eur 193 million (excluding Technical Assistance), as follows:

Priority 1: Enhancing employability and labour market resilience;

Priority 2: Fostering active inclusion for all;

Priority 3: Quality and inclusive education and enhanced lifelong learning for growth; and

Priority 4: Addressing material deprivation.

In order to strengthen social dialogue throughout the implementation of the programme, the ESF+ will also support the capacity building of social partners to enable them to contribute towards the formulation of national social, education and employment policies.
