BARBADOS RECEIVES FOURTH TRANCHE OF BUDGETARY SUPPORT FROM E.U. (Pt 2)
Mr. Sinckler said that now was the time for Barbados to reposition its human resources so that it can engage the global economy with new, exciting and different skills to be able to compete.
She said that under the project, the role of the Ministry had expanded from traditionally ensuring acceptable workplace conditions and procuring work for people under its employment programmes, to now making sure that workers were adequately prepared for the workplace by acquiring the right skills.
She added that with certification, these workers would be eligible to work not only in Barbados and the rest of the region but also further afield, since the Ministry of Labour was working with Canada and Europe to ensure opportunities for skilled workers in these countries.
Ambasador Barfod said he was pleased with the implementation of the programme so far.
