Regional Working Group of the Landkreis Börde

The positive experiences in the past ESF funding period 2014 - 2020 have shown that the consistent and coordinated involvement of regional labor market actors contributes significantly to improving the success and acceptance of labor market policy measures. Cross-jurisdictional and cross-sectoral cooperation is the basic prerequisite for the success and sustainability of projects.

The goal of the state government is to implement the strategic cooperation created in the area of labor market policy via the Regional Working Groups (RAK) the Directive on the Granting of Allowances for the Regionalization of Labor Market Promotion from Funds of the European Social Fund Plus and the State of Saxony-Anhalt "REGIO AKTIV" in the ESF+ funding period 2021 - 2027 and to strengthen the regionalized labor market policy.

The labor market actors of the Landkreis Börde are to be strategically and practically involved in the planning, decision-making and implementation of funding activities, thus flexibly aligning labor market funding with regional needs. The regional working group (RAK) is a prerequisite for the design of the "REGIO AKTIV" funding. For the entire ESF+ funding period 2021 - 2027, the RAK is formed and is thus the central body of regionalized labor market policy.


The RAK consists of one representative of each of the following institutions / organizations and is appointed by the District Administrator of the Landkreis Börde by name:

  • Saxony-Anhalt North Employment Agency
  • German Trade Union Federation, Altmark-Börde-Harz Region
