Budget line / available budget
The total budget earmarked for this call is estimated at EUR 1 140 million.
Objectives and supported actions in the field of ENAR's work
One of the overall strategic priorities is to promote social inclusion and gender equality in education and training, including the integration of migrants and Roma
Following the 2010 European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Inclusion, the adoption of a headline target under the EU 2020 Strategy on the reduction of early school leaving and the 2010 Council conclusions on the education of migrants and on the social dimension of education and training, projects will be called to promote social inclusion through education. Issues relating to the participation of migrants, groups with fewer opportunities, including Roma, and vulnerable social groups of people with special needs will be particularly important for schools, VET and adult education. Access to adequate guidance for these groups of learners is particularly important.
1.2.4 Reducing early school leaving, improving the learning of students with migrant background and Roma pupils as well as promoting gender equality and inclusive approaches to learning
2.2.2 Social dimension of higher education
The major objectives are the widening of the participation and raising completion rates of underrepresented groups (due to the factors such as socio-economic background, disability, ethnic, migrant etc.) and non-traditional learners (part-time students, those with demanding family responsibilities, adult learners etc.), enhancing lifelong learning via the creation of flexible learning paths, developing ways to increase the social responsibility of higher education institutions, and improvement of gender balance on particularly unbalanced fields of study.
