HRDC to broaden Training Levy beneficiaries

The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC), which now administers the Vocation Training Levy Fund, plans to amend its regulations, to cater for other levels of training.

The training levy is a tax based on an employer’s turnover, which is collected and deposited into the Vocational Training Fund. The purpose of the fund is to reimburse employers the costs accumulated for training citizen employees.

HDRC communications officer, Topo Rabasima said individuals who pay the levy had requested that the fund should cover Masters and PhD programmes, as well as other professional short courses.  “During the months of September to October last year, there were nationwide stakeholder consultations on the envisaged changes to the regulations,” he said.
