Work practice helps restore working habits or form primary ones. The service is first and foremost designed for unemployed people who
- have been unemployed for a long time
- have no work experience
- are not ready to work independently on the open labour market
Work practice includes simpler jobs which do not require special knowledge or for which the necessary skills can be acquired in the course of the work with the advice and guidance of a supervisor.
During group work, job-seeking skills and social skills supporting job-seeking are developed, an overview of the local labour market is provided and visits to employers are arranged.
Work practice usually lasts for up to three months. The long-term unemployed or unemployed people with special social needs may participate in work practice for up to six months.
In the course of participating you can apply for a grant and for commuting and accommodation benefits.
The labour market service provided for individuals with decreased working ability is co-financed by the European Social Fund of the European Union by regulation No. 57 of the Minister of Social Protection and the Minister of Health and Labour of 27 March 2015 on the basis of ‘Provision of labour market services to the target group of work reforms’ .
