The European Parliament,

A.  whereas, as of June 2018(1), there were 17 million jobseekers in the EU who would find it easier to find employment if they acquired skills;

C.  whereas 2.7 million citizens of third countries immigrated to the EU in 2015(3) alone;

D.  whereas, in France in 2016, the rate of employment for people born outside the EU was 54%;

E.  whereas funds for the training of citizens and jobseekers residing in Europe already exist;

1.  Calls on the Commission to ring-fence one such fund solely for EU citizens;

2.  Calls on the Commission to offer businesses employing non-EU nationals the chance to sign up to this fund voluntarily by 1 July 2019, with the obligation to contribute to it in the subsequent 18 months, according to how many non-EU national staff they employ.
