Government moving to retrain and retool retrenched workers

As part of the Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) Programme, the government is seeking to retrain and retool displaced public sector workers.

The retraining and retooling program is intended to provide opportunities to gain alternative employment or to be self-employed. 

To assist in this effort, an option form has been developed for retrenched public servants. The option form requests users to list what areas of retraining they are interested in such as the digitization of government records or messenger services, in addition to asking what type of resources from government they require such as land for agricultural use or a trust loan for business. 

Interested persons are encouraged to study the form closely, complete it and submit it online.
