Join our youth training today!

Youths countrywide are trained through the National Training Project for Youth Empowerment (NTPYE) launched in 2005 to provide youth-emp-1Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to out-of-school youths across the country.

Most of these youths do not have the requisite CSEC qualifications to enter the job market or they may not have completed secondary education.

Short term training programmes (6 – 12 months) are conducted for youths between the ages of 15 and 25, who are attached to places of employment to acquire skills in various occupations by which they can gain employment after training.


The youths are usually trained in their communities or nearby to ensure they attend sessions regularly. They are also given a stipend and tools for the training. Upon successful completion of their training, they are given tools to conduct their trade or craft as a small business or as an employee.

Areas of training include:

  • Engineering
  • electrical construction
  • health services
  • information technology
  • clerical work
  • home economics

On the job training is supplemented by a period of classroom sessions to provide trainees with entrepreneurial training and Life Skills Education that includes sessions on:
