- Are refugees eligible to participate in vocational trainings?
Yes. Persons who have refugee status or subsidiary protection have full access to the labour market and to vocational training, under the same conditions as nationals, and effective immediately upon receiving their international protection status.
NOTE: Often, in both official and unofficial settings, as well as in the media, the terms “refugee” and "asylum seeker" are used interchangeably. Asylum-seekers are individuals who have applied for asylum, but have not received a final decision yet on their application. While waiting for that decision to be made, asylum-seekers have restricted access to the labour market and to State-sponsored vocational training programmes, and special procedures and criteria apply in their case. Because of these restrictions, asylum-seekers are not included within the scope of the HelpRefugeesWork platform.
- Are refugees eligible to participate in training programs funded (fully or partially) by the Human Resources and Development Authority of Cyprus (HRDA or ΑΝΑΔ)?
