TECHNICAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROJECT (TSDP)

ABOUT TSDP

The ITF-NECA Technical Skills Development Project is a joint initiative designed to promote the training and development of technically skilled manpower with appropriate Technical and Vocational Skills to meet the identified maintenance needs of industries.


Industrial Training Fund (ITF)

The Industrial Training Fund was established in 1971 under Decree 47 of 1971 (as amended by ACT, 2011) to:

  • provide, promote and encourage the acquisition of skills in industry and commerce with a view to generating a pool of indigenous trained manpower sufficient to meet the needs of the private and public sectors of the economy;
  • provide training for skills in management for technical and entrepreneurial development in the public and private sectors of the economy;
  • set training standards in all sectors of the economy and monitor adherence; and
    evaluate and certify vocational skills acquired by apprentices, craftsmen and technicians in collaboration with relevant organisations.

The Decree (now Act) stipulates two sources of funding; which are:

  • Subventions from the Federal Government; and
  • Training Contributions amounting to 1% of the Pay Roll of employers that have 5 workers and above or less than 5 employees but with a turnover of N50m and above per annum.

Consequently, the Fund has had to depend mainly on the revenue from contributing employers whose membership is largely under NECA and within the OPS since its inception.
