GRTU, in collaboration with ETC, has held an information session on Wednesday 7th January 2015 on the Training Aid Framework 2 Funding Opportunity. The session explained how employers could benefit from up to 70% reimbursement for costs regarding training held between
January and June 2015. These costs include the trainer costs, the costs (hourly wage) of the training hours of the employee, and any travelling costs. Training can be both external as well as internal. Non-accredited training is also eligible up to 25 hours. The training can be of any type as long as it is not the minimum requirements stated by law to be able to operate in a particular role or sector.
In view of upcoming funding schemes to be issued for companies to reach certification standards, the session also gave an overview of a quality management training which can be undertaken between:
• 12-16 April 2015 – 9am to 2pm
• 17-22 May 2015 – 12pm to 5pm
This training costs Eur335 (excl. VAT), for which funding can be applied for under the TAF2 scheme.
The deadline for the TAF2 scheme is 16th January 2015 at 12:00hrs.
GRTU urges our members to address any training needs through this funding scheme and encourages you to apply. Even though it is only one week away, there is still ample time to make the necessary preparations. GRTU will be assisting you along the way.
