The National Transformation Initiative (NTI) will help companies prepare tourism-specific training plans. The NTI will meet the cost of NTI sourced training.
As part of BEST requirements, companies and their employees’ representatives must submit a Joint Return to Work and Training Plan, which will outline the training and development component.
Firms will take initiatives to transform and upgrade the skills and competencies of their employees. Employees will receive certificates and qualifications that will enhance their employability for the future.
You’re certainly not alone. That’s true for so many of us. We’re making it our priority to help people refocus, whether you’re off work or working from home. Even if you’ve returned to work, we’re still here for you. We want you to recover a sense of calm and to have hope, so, we’re providing training to guide you into the future. With new knowledge, skills, and the confidence as a proud Barbadian to take on the world. That way, you’ll be re-energised and empowered as we move into the future.
We’re helping Barbadians sharpen their knowledge and skills, and expand their sense of identity, pride and self-respect in being Bajan. That’s why the National Training Initiative has set its top goal as retooling, retraining, empowering and enfranchising every Barbadian in the Informal, Third and Private sectors. No matter where we serve, we must be able to hold our own in a global workplace.
We believe learning can be fun. The NTI wants to provide training that’s engaging and enjoyable for Bajans. Learning should be a joy whatever your age, station or education. Our materials will cater for how you learn. You can get certified to show you’ve participated in or completed a course in the area you choose. Or, you can get accredited to do further training with other institutions. Upskill for your current job or get new skills for a job for the dynamic future. There’s so much reward in lifelong learning and we’re making sure everyone has the chance. That’s why it’s free!
