We will start providing services aimed at prevention of unemployment on 1 May 2017. These services are targeted to employeese who need support in changing jobs or remaining employed due to a lack of skills or their skills being outdated, as well as to employers to support them in finding and training suitably skilled workforce and restructuring their companies.
The new services are as follows:
- a degree study allowance for an employed person or a person registered as unemployed for obtaining vocational, professional higher education or Bachelor's studies;
- labour market training with a training card for employed persons at risk of unemployment;
- support for obtaining qualifications for employed persons who have undergone labour market or other training with the support of the training benefit;
- a training grant for employers for improving the skills and knowledge of their employees upon their recruitment and helping them to adapt to changes in the employer's economic activities.
