 The Placement Process

The placement process of the OJT Programme is demand-driven = placement is based on labour market needs.

Our team of competent Placement Development Officers at each of our Regional and Sub-Regional Offices engage Employers - Training Providers, in the public and private sectors.

Our Officers work with these Employers to secure and arrange placement opportunities based on their labour or workforce requirements, to place Applicants with the qualifications that are being sought.

Once a suitable placement opportunity has been sourced, Applicants are contacted, to be interviewed by a Placement Development Officer to discuss and treat with the placement details. Applicants are welcomed to ask any questions about the placement opportunity, and to find out even more about the OJT Programme and how it works.

Training, Performance Monitoring & Evaluation Process

Training Performance Monitoring Evaluation Process 

 

  • Training Specialists

    • The Training Specialists work with employers to develop a structured training programme for Trainees designed to enable workplace learning and development of competencies. They will also ensure that the training provided meets the requirements for the Trinidad and Tobago National Vocational Qualification (TTNVQ) or Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) and as a result the development of structured training plans will now be a critical component of the programme. The specialists will also conduct “train the trainer” workshops to ensure that Providers have the capacity to assess Trainees’ performance effectively.


  • Performance Monitoring & Evaluation (PME) Officers

    • Trainees will be monitored and evaluated during their 24 month period, by Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Officers. These Officers will provide continuous supervision of Trainee attendance, development of work attitudes, Trainee growth in knowledge and skills, contribution to the placement organization and obtains from Trainee views on attachment. They will also seek to ensure through collaboration with training Providers that training levels are maintained to satisfy standards for certification.


  • Placement Assistants

    • Placement Assistants will now be available to provide ancillary support in the monitoring process. These Officers will assist primarily with the collection and delivery of time sheets, contracts and other correspondence monthly from/to Providers and Trainees.
