Can I collect unemployment benefit if I am awarded a training grant?


By combining work practices with the studies that are carried out, A common doubt that arises among certain students is whether they can carry out these activities and continue to receive unemployment benefits. The answer is not as simple as yes or no, since certain conditions must be met so that those interested can take advantage of this opportunity and at the same time not lose access to the subsidy.

In principle, there are two situations in which a training grant may exclude access to unemployment benefits. The first is the one in which the non-labour internships carried out in companies without being linked to the study plan and that involve registering as a salaried worker in Social Security.

In the second instance, participation in training programs linked to university studies or professional training that entail the collection of money and entry into the General Social Security Scheme as an employeeeven if it is curricular training practices.

How to combine the provision and internships

However, there are conditions under which these practices do not necessarily imply the end of the consideration for unemployed. The first requirement is that they be included in the curriculum and that they arise from a collaboration between the entity in which they are carried out, whether public or privateand the educational center that manages the training scholarship.

The other obligation is that carrying out the internships does not imply an exclusive dedication to them. That is to say, that these activities do not interfere with the active search for employment that the subsidy requires, in such a way that the interested parties can accept a position in the site that is offered to them. Thus, financial aid must correspond to expenses involving the purchase of work material, transportation, accommodation or maintenance.
