The policies governing the Employment and Training Fund (ETF) have been updated by the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council, the agency responsible for managing the fund.
The updated policies, which take effect from Monday, July 1, 2019 are intended to help improve the process by which employers, training institutions and other eligible organisations, apply for training grants to fund the cost of training employees and other members of the workforce.
Manager, Finance and Corporate Services, Matthew Greaves said: “The ETF provides grants for both training and assessment to business associations, employers, private and public training institutions. To provide this service effectively, the Council from time to time reviews and updates the policies which guide the process aimed at ensuring Barbados develops a trained, competent and competitive workforce.
