Linguistic?

Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Education, Training & Development

Under the Education, Training and Development (ET&D) option of the Back To Education Programmes, a person may continue to receive (subject to certain conditions) his/her Jobseekers Allowance or Jobseekers Benefit while attending certain courses of education, training or development.

Note: unlike the Back to Education Allowance (BTEA) Scheme, this option is not a stand alone scheme. Persons who qualify under the ET&D Option continue to be paid Jobseekers Allowance or Jobseekers Benefit as appropriate, and must be available for employment for the duration of the course of education, training or development.

Courses which are not recognised under BTEA and which are being pursued at an institution which is funded wholly or partly by state agencies, may be approved under this initiative, if they lead to improved employment prospects on completion.

A broad range of courses may be approved under the scheme including: Personal Development, Literacy, General Training and Specific Job Skills courses.

Eligible participants must be:

  • At least 21 years of age or
  • Aged between 18 and 20 and out of the formal education system for at least 2 years
  • In receipt of Jobseekers Allowance or Jobseekers Benefit for at least 6 months
Further information on the ET&D Option is available click here
