(YETP) One-month Workplace Attachment Training
Before getting a job and living a work life, you can try one-month Workplace Attachment Training.
To provide trainees with an opportunity to gain valuable experience in a real working environment, develop a positive work attitude and good work habits, polish interpersonal skills and gain insightful knowledge about different industries through a one-month Workplace Attachment Training (WPA). It would also enable youngsters to discover their own potential and unearth employment opportunities.
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.
The attachment hours should be between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., 4 to 5 working days per week, 6 to 8 working hours per day (excluding meal break), and not less than 30 working hours per week.
Upon completion of each WPA training with an attendance rate of 80% or above, trainees may receive a "WPA certificate" issued by the host organisations as a token of recognition and apply for an allowance from the Programme Office through the host organisations. The amount of such allowance is $5,800 for WPA training with effect from 1 January 2020.
The Programme Office will take out insurance for participating trainees covering personal injuries and accidents, and third-party liabilities.
The Programme Office encourages host organisations to offer an employment to trainees who have completed the WPA with satisfactory performance through YETP’s full time or part-time on-the-job training of 6 to 12 months.
