A question from ĐỖ KHẮC MINH (Long An Province): “What is the maximum duration of vocational training support for unemployed workers? What is the support level?”
Lawyer ĐẶNG ANH ĐỨC, Hanoi Bar Association: Based on the provisions of Article 56 of the 2013 Labor Code, the duration of vocational training support corresponds to the actual training period but not exceeding 6 months. According to Article 3 of Decision No. 17/2021/QĐ-TTg, the specific level of vocational training support for unemployed workers is as follows:
For individuals participating in vocational training courses up to 3 months, the support rate is calculated according to the tuition fee rate of the vocational training institutions and the actual apprenticeship period but not exceeding 4,500,000 VND/person/training course.
For individuals participating in vocational training courses exceeding 3 months, the support is calculated on a monthly basis, taking into account the tuition fee and actual apprenticeship period, but not exceeding 1.5 million VND/person/month. In cases the employees participating in the vocational training course have odd days or not enough months as prescribed by the vocational training institutions, the odd number of days shall be calculated on the principle: From 14 days or less, it is calculated as 1/2 month and 15 days or more is calculated as 01 month.
