Part-Time Education Option


The Part-Time Job Incentive (PTJI) Scheme is intended as a stepping stone to full-time work. It allows certain long-term unemployed people to take up part-time work and get a special weekly allowance instead of their jobseeker’s payment. Recipients of the Part-Time Job Incentive Scheme must be available for and seeking full-time work while getting the payment.

The PTEO scheme does not involve any special payment or additional allowance.
