Programme Structure & Learner Allowances
The Youthreach programme is a full-time programme. Learners must attend the programme for a minimum of 209 days per academic year and be timetabled for a minimum of 28 hours per week over 5 days. Courses are provided free of charge and a weekly training allowance is paid.
Learners participating in a Youthreach programme are entitled to a range of supports.
Students will be paid every Friday for the previous week’s attendance.
Payments are attendance based, so students get an allowance for the exact amount of hours that they attend.
15 year old students are not entitled to an allowance.
Meal and Travel Allowances are also paid.
