Abstract/Citation: Under this Ordinance, training allowances can be granted for employment market training occasioned whenever it is considered that the training would lead to permanent employment, a stronger position of the employee or better representation of the members of the underrepresented sex in a particular field of employment. The employment market authorities will either create the training scheme or use the regular educational system. In order to obtain the training allowance, the person shall be 20 years of age or older, be unemployed or likely to become so and shall be seeking a job through the state employment office (special rules for handicapped persons, youth between 18 and 20 years of age and refugees). Normally the training shall not be received whenever a normal student grant can be obtained. It includes a training allowance consisting of inter alia a daily wage (the same amount as granted under the Public Insurance Act) and the costs of the material for the course.
