LABOUR MINISTER LAUDS Competency-Based Training Fund (CBTF) INITIATIVE
Minister of Labour, Social Security and Human Resource Development, Senator Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo, has lauded the Skills For The Future Programme which encompasses the Competency-Based Training Fund (CBTF).
In praising the CBTF initiative, she noted that by its conclusion, it “would have contributed to the development of a demand driven education and training system that produces workers who are trained, competent and certified as competent in their respective occupations”.
The CBTF is just one part of Government’s “Skills for the Future Programme” which was launched in association with the Inter-American Development Bank, earlier this year. This programme’s overall aim is to enhance the competitiveness of the local workforce through the use of Technical Vocational Education and Training. (JH/BGIS)
