Benefits of ojt

The programme seeks to provide the following benefits for trainees:

  • Trainees are provided with job experience, an invaluable asset for achieving gainful employment.
  • Trainees are exposed to the numerous advantages that are associated with being employed. They earn an income through a stipend but they also become more familiar with interpersonal relationships, networking, responsibility and the importance of interdependence within the working environment.
  • Trainees get an opportunity to prove themselves to an employer and, based on their work performance and the existence of vacancies within the organization, they may eventually be employed on a more permanent basis.

For employers:

  • The cost of this mutually beneficial programme is borne jointly by the government and employers so that the full financial burden falls on neither party.
  • By actively supporting the programme, companies have realized improved 'public image' through their commitment to the national good as well as their contribution to full employment and an improved quality of life for all.
  • The Government and employers are stakeholders in creating a more job ready labour force.
  • Overview As a developing nation, Trinidad and Tobago is strategically positioned to benefit from the immediate and long-term opportunities to be derived from current and projected global economic trends. Read More...
