The European Social Fund (ESF) Operational Programme has been updated and revised version published on the Gov.uk website.

The Operational Programme sets out the Funds strategy, investment priorities, programme objectives and operational procedures.

The revisions include:

  • updated unit costs to reflect current economic conditions
  • revised the way results targets are monitored to make them more transparent (changing from percentage to volume targets in many cases)
  • moving funds between Categories of Region from relatively low demand areas to higher demand areas to ensure demand is balanced across the programme and reduce the risk of both over and underspends
