The Employment Ministry believes the allocation of $400,000 to the Apprenticeship Scheme will assist in equipping workers with the skillsets needed to help in securing a job.

Employment Minister Jone Usamate says the scheme which is managed by the National Productivity and Training Centre, will also assist apprentices in government entities.

Usamate believes apprenticeship has been proven to be the best way of developing skilled trade’s people.

“My ministry will work closely with institutions and employers to have the correct balance between the labour market demand and supply. This will ensure that our labour market is not flooded with Qualifications that are not highly demanded and funds are not wasted in investing in low demand skill sets.”

Usamate assured members of the House that the allocation provided to the Employment Ministry also touches on building skills and capacity in the trade market.
