Introduction to Workplace Attachment (WPA)

Attachment opportunities will be offered by the private, public and social service sectors. Each trainee will undergo WPA training in a host organisation for ONE month and there is no employment relationship between the host organisation and the trainee. Trainees are eligible for WPA training allowance provided that they complete the training with an attendance rate of 80% or above. The amount of such allowance is $4,500 for WPA training commencing during the period from 1 September 2017 to 31 December 2019, and $5,800 with effect from 1 January 2020. Trainees will also be awarded with a "WPA certificate" by the host organisation as a token of recognition.
