The 2020 schedule of deadlines for application to the Employment and Training Fund (ETF) is available!
The ETF provides training grants to employers, business associations and private and public training institutions to fund the cost of training and assessment of employees and other members of the workforce. The Technical and Vocational Education and Training Council (TVETC) is the agency responsible for managing the fund which is financed out of the national Training Levy.
The Training Levy is paid by all employers and employees. A primary focus of the fund is therefore to provide grants to encourage the private sector to expand and upgrade its training activities. The ETF is a means by which employers can recover some or all of their contributions to the Training Levy.
The ETF is a vehicle by which the TVETC promotes and supports training and the upgrading of the skills of Barbados' workforce so that it is both competent and competitive.
