Did you know ...
the main professions are jobs that resemble one another and require similar vocational skills and education. The Unemployment Insurance Fund supports study programmes for professions in which there is a growing need for workers and where the demand for qualified workforce exceeds supply. The Unemployment Insurance Fund does not support professions for which the education system already provides a sufficient number of workers.
