"All the 680 thousand participants had received program funding of Rp3,550,000 (some US$240) through each virtual bank account. Of this figure, over 300 thousand had also received the monthly incentive of Rp600,000 after the training," Purbasari highlighted during a virtual discussion held here on Tuesday.
The incentive will only be given to participants on completion of the training session, comprising some skill-based virtual trainings that they choose from over a thousand trainings in various topics available.
As per today, some 10.4 million people have enrolled for this program. However, people, who could pass to participate, are automatically selected by machine alignment with the program's priority. Hence, those not listed may wait until the next term opens.
"Fellow friends, who could not make it (to join the program) now, please be patient, as we continue to open next batches through November," Purbasari stressed.
Purbasari highlighted the need to suspend the forth term for a while owing to system issues as well as to spare some time for employees hit hard by the outbreak, as they should be prioritized in line with the government's suggestion.
However, Purbasari has vowed that the fourth term will open after this Ramadan season. Related news: Gauging whether pre-employment card is solution amid COVID-19 pandemic
