Unemployed? Learn a new skill and get a per diem of Bt150 for 15 days

Unemployed? Learn a new skill and get a per diem of Bt150 for 15 days

WEDNESDAY, April 22, 2020

The Labour Ministry will provide 15-day vocational courses to people who have been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, Department of Skill Development’s director-general Thawat Benjathikul said on Wednesday (April 22).

“We realise that many labourers and self-employed people have had to stop working due to the government’s shutdown orders to contain the contagion,” he said. “Hence the department has decided to provide courses for those who are not working at the moment so they can improve their skills and perhaps explore new career opportunities once the situation returns to normal.”
“Participants will also be given a daily allowance of Bt150,” he added. “Courses featured include growing vegetables hydroponically, barista skills, running a coffee shop business, making desserts and more.”

The Department of Skill Development aims to reskill 7,800 people in 390 batches. It is also planning advanced programmes for regular employees who want to upgrade their skills in foreign languages, computer usage and other fields as required by employers. This programme is scheduled to kick off soon and expects up to 7,000 participants.
