Proposed Changes to the Target of the HEART Trust/ NSTA

The HEART Trust is financed by the employers of Jamaica by way of a training levy of 3% of their wage bill. The quid pro quo is that HEART would use that money to produce a world-class Jamaican workforce, trained, assessed, and certified competent to international standards. But are these employers and Jamaica getting what was paid for? And if the answer is yes, then what does the recent suggestion of lowering the pass mark and the target percentage of graduates really mean?

To discuss we are joined by former executive director of the Heart Trust/NTA Robert Gregory and UWI Lecturer and Education Management Specialist Dr. Canute Thompson.
