Training Allowance

  • To encourage young people to receive pre‐employment training, eligible trainees who enrolled in a training course of ERB or the YETP via the Programme and obtained 80% attendance or above are entitled to apply for training allowance. Under the YETP, the amount of training allowance payable for “Youth Training Programme” courses of ERB is calculated at a rate of $121 per valid training day, while that for other ERB courses and the YETP courses is calculated at a rate of $241 per day (A whole-day course generally consists of two sessions while the amount of training allowance is $120.5 per valid training session. The attendance rate of evening courses is calculated on a class basis.).
  • To avoid double benefits, YETP trainees are not allowed to receive training allowance under YETP and retraining allowance under ERB concurrently.
