The Industrial Training Fund (ITF) will train 27,000 youths by the end of 2025.
Its Director-General, Joseph Ari, stated this in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
Mr Ari said this is the objective of its strategic policy for 2022-2025, entitled: “Re-Engineering Skills for Sustainable Development’’.
He added that the beneficiaries would be provided with start-up packs and that the fund’s commercialisation in the strategic policy would open new streams of income for the ITF.
Mr Ari said the review meeting was an avenue to discuss the new strategy policy plan.
The DG disclosed that it was also meant to evaluate how the fund had impacted the human resource development sector in its 50 years of existence.
He said the management of ITF was committed to ensuring that the fund remained a leader in the human resource development sector. The director-general added that the ITF would continue to provide credible leadership that would inspire its staff for the growth of the fund.
He commended the staff for being key drivers of the fund’s initiatives and programmes.
Ari told members of Staff that more could be achieved for its survival by their redoubled commitment, better work ethics and adherence to the ITF’s core values.
The theme for the half-year review was “Consolidating the gains of HRD beyond 50 years of the ITF’s existence”.
