National Skills Development Programme (NSDP)


In 1994, the National Skills Development Programme (NSDP) was initialised by the late Patrick Manning to adapt the German Model of Technical Training to Trinidad and Tobago as a response to the need within the labour market for skilled and experienced Craftsmen.

The Programme follows the German Dual System of Technical Vocational Training and uses the Factory Training Concept where foundation theoretical and practical skills are developed in MIC Institute of Technology and mastery of these skills are developed in the industry under guided supervision of a skilled Supervisor or Master Craftsman.
