Tai'an offers free vocational training to poverty-stricken students

Tai'an city will offer free vocational skills training to 720 youth from low-income families in the city, reported on Tuesday.

According to the city's human resources and social security bureau, the training will last for two years and mainly focus on intermediate skills.

The training fields will cover 20 market-oriented and promising professions, involving accounting, automobile use and maintenance, numerical control machining and welding, and metal fabrication. The bureau will also help to introduce jobs for the students after graduation.

The tuition and a portion of living costs will be provided by provincial finances. Their accommodations will be exempted.

Youth between 15 to 22 years old from families with per-capita income lower than 800 yuan ($130.63) can apply for the program.

Tai'an city has already supported nearly 6,000 poverty-stricken students and introduced work to more than 4,000 graduates since the program launched in 2005. It has become one of the city's most effective ways to alleviate poverty.
