The aim of this scheme is to assist employed and self-employed
persons attending one of Jobsplus courses and whose weekly wage does not
exceed €300 (basic) per week. Jobsplus offers training courses in
various areas including literacy and numeracy, computing, trade,
technical, accounting, clerical work and care services. Employed
individuals following these courses can benefit from a financial grant
of €25 per week provided that they attend a minimum of four hours of
training per week. The grant is given to an individual upon successfully
completing the whole course (not applicable for courses that do not have an assessment component). Payment is based on the hours an
individual attends and the duration of the course. Persons who
terminate or drop out of the course, and/or have absences, which
preclude them from sitting for the final assessment (where applicable), are not eligible to
claim this allowance.
