- The Human Employment and Resource Training/National Service Training Agency (HEART/NSTA Trust) remains committed to developing Jamaica’s labour force, by offering globally competitive training and employment opportunities.
- This is being done through the organization’s Triple Access Strategy, which outlines three priority areas of focus for the strategic period (2022-2026) and is in alignment with the Vision 2030 National Development Goal, which is to ensure that “Jamaicans are empowered to achieve their fullest potential”.
- Addressing a JIS ‘Think Tank’, on August 26, Managing Director of the HEART/NSTA Trust, Dr Taneisha Ingleton, outlined the priority areas of focus for the agency. She added that emphasis will be placed on certifying Jamaicans in labour market-driven and emerging skills and the facilitation of decent work.
- Also, more Jamaicans can now advance their computer skills through Tech$ense, a digital literacy programme offered by the (HEART/NSTA) Trust which was first geared towards HEART trainees, and is now being extended to include other members of the public
- It supports the Government’s thrust to reposition the nation as a technology-enabled society and helps participants to use technology confidently, manage their online identity and security as well as increase their employability to contribute to a reduction in the unemployment rate.
