Labour Mar­ket Trai­ning

The pur­po­se of labour mar­ket trai­ning is to upgra­de and main­tain adults’ pro­fes­sio­nal com­pe­tencies. This trai­ning is desig­ned pri­ma­ri­ly for adults who are unemplo­yed or under the threat of beco­ming unemplo­yed and who have comple­ted com­pul­so­ry educa­tion. The objec­ti­ve of labour mar­ket trai­ning is to impro­ve the par­tici­pants’ chances of fin­ding work. It is often con­ti­nuing and furt­her educa­tion for the pro­fes­sio­nal skills acqui­red ear­lier. It is prac­tical in natu­re and in most cases inclu­des on-the-job lear­ning.

Fun­ded by the labour admi­ni­stra­tion, labour mar­ket trai­ning is pro­vi­ded free of char­ge to the par­tici­pants. For labour mar­ket trai­ning par­tici­pants can recei­ve trai­ning allowance, which is equal to the unemplo­y­ment allowance, or labour mar­ket sub­si­dy. Applica­tion for labour mar­ket trai­ning is via the Emplo­y­ment and Eco­no­mic Deve­lop­ment Office, which also per­forms stu­dent selec­tion.
