The Münsterland Regional Agency is part of a state-wide implementation and support structure of the NRW Ministry of Labour (MAGS). Together with another 15 regional agencies and with the state's granting and advisory institutions, we implement the MAGS employment and training programmes on the ground. The financial and legal framework is provided by the European Social Fund (ESF) of the European Union.
As an interface between the state and the region, we are both an "outpost" of the MAGS and an agency of the Münsterland. We are involved in the implementation of funding programmes and strategies of the Ministry of Employment in the region. We also bundle the impulses from the Münsterland region and report project ideas and special funding features back to the state.
For targeted and effective project design, our steering group and our specialist working group "Work and Employment" continuously accompany our efforts at the regional level. Together with the other actors in Münsterland, new regional strategies are developed to secure existing jobs in the long term or to install new employment potential.
