Government Revamps Former Youth Apprenticeship Program

The Youth Apprenticeship Program and Enterprise Development program has been revamped to the “Entrepreneurship & On-the-Job Skills Training Service”, formally known as the Youth Apprenticeship Program and Enterprise Development.

The Youth Apprenticeship Program and Enterprise Development program has been revamped to the “Entrepreneurship & On-the-Job Skills Training Service”, formally known as the Youth Apprenticeship Program and Enterprise Development. According to the Government, this service will offer a hands-on approach to career growth by providing interns with trade opportunities to choose from including plumbing, air-conditioning repair, electrical work, mechanical work, waitressing, and food preparation.  Currently, 97 interns are enrolled in the Entrepreneurship & On-the-Job Skills Training Service. This cohort will be placed for a period of three months and will be re-engaged after the start of the new financial year on April 1, 2021. After the completion of the three-month period, a certification in the trade will be granted. When the interns are re-engaged, the certification will be accredited by the Institute for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ITVET).
