Training Administration Division (TAD) enters a new era of public service training



TAD logo2With the adoption of Internet-based learning technologies, Training Administration Division (TAD) has taken the bold step of giving thousands of public officers and indeed Barbadians the opportunity to access their course offerings anytime, anywhere.

The agency recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with its entry into the E-environment with the creation of a new website virtual classroom, and mobile application, all designed to provide the Public Service with timely, relevant, and cost effective training and training-related services.

The website will allow public officers to view, access services and conduct business with the Division. Facilitating the application process for training courses and study and training leave requests.

The virtual classroom is expected to not only widen the Division’s reach in terms of public officers accessing learning but it presents an alternative mode for the delivery of learning that will cater to all learning needs. TAD has collaborated with the Higher Education Development Unit, Ministry of Education, Science Technology and Innovation to utilise that Unit’s MOODLE online platform ‘TRIDENT Learning,’ to host the Division’s online learning courses.

The mobile application will facilitate greater and easier access to the Division’s training products, both local in-service and overseas offers. The application will undoubtedly increase access and allow digitally connected officers to access training services, information and eventually mobile learning without being constrained by organisational hierarchies within their respective ministries/departments.

This new era also heralds in course accreditation. TAD will be working closely with the Barbados Accreditation Council to ensure that courses will be accredited and linked to the National Qualifications Framework. Public officers will be able to obtain either a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) or a Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) when successfully completing a TAD programme.

The Office of Public Sector Reform Congratulates the Management and Staff of the Training Administration Division on the achievement of their 50th anniversary and their entry into the internet- based training arena.
