The HEART/ NSTA Trust is being repositioned to meet the demands of the 21st century workforce.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness said the adjustment will ensure that the operations of the institution are in keeping with the growth agenda, which includes significantly improving the employability of citizens, particularly the youth.
He said it is imperative that the Heart/NSTA Trust and other training institutions develop programmes that are responsive to the needs of the job market.
The Prime Minister was addressing the graduation ceremony for the first cohort of 25 trainees under the Amber Heart Academy at the AC Marriott Hotel in St. Andrew, yesterday (June 1).
The graduates are equipped with skills in coding and software development to ensure successful careers, and tap into local and global demand.
