European Social Fund Programme

The European programmes for Lowlands and Uplands Scotland for the period 2014-2020 is underway. It aims to address social inequalities within and across regions by improving the general performance of the labour market. The European Social Fund (ESF) aims to help people improve their lives by learning new skills and finding better jobs.

A new programme has been approved and we will use it to help deliver some East Lothian Works services. This is a council service within Education, that focuses on providing and supporting a range of employability services and business support activities across East Lothian.
