The Ministry of Education congratulates the Youth Training and Employment Partnership Programme (YTEPP) on its Centre Approval Status (2020-2023). The award was conferred on the institution by the National Training Agency (NTA) for the period 2020 – 2023.
“This accreditation is an endorsement of the quality of education delivered by YTEPP as well as the standard of its facilities. Our students can be assured that they have access to the best in class amenities in the area of vocational skills training,” said Minister of Education, the Honourable Anthony Garcia.
