Learning offer in collaboration with employers
“Targeted and planned adult learning” is one of the solutions for labour market challenges, so the list of training in each round is taking into account the labour market forecasts of the Ministry of Economics and Welfare and employers' recommendations in order to reduce the shortage of skilled workhands and the ageing of the workforce in key sectors of the economy. In the past three years of the project, 17 thousand employees have been involved, ”emphasizes SIA Director Dita Traidas.
In order to motivate workers to learn, the project covers most of the training costs OF EU funds and the country, while the population must provide a CO-payment OF 10%, which can also be paid by the employer. In non-formal education programmes, which are the most recent lessons in the project, the total amount of the citizen's co-payment is 36 euros, while in longer education programmes where the profession can be obtained, it may also be a number of hundreds of euros.
Low-income and poor training is free of charge and these groups of citizens can also receive support for regional mobility - compensation for transport costs if such expenditure is incurred during training. Workers with disabilities may, on the other hand, qualify for reimbursement of the costs of the assistant or surrogate interpreter during the course of the training.
In cases where workers need information support for the choice of the most suitable learning or the possibility of applying for online learning, we call on adult education coordinators 82 VIAA cooperation municipalities. The training application may also be drawn up in the SVIAA, in pre-logging and presenting a personal identification document. On the other hand, 28 employees of the State Agency of Employment may receive a career advice.
