CBTF Model Exported To Other Countries

The Competency-Based Training Fund (CBTF) dubbed the flagship of the Skills for the Future (SFTF) Program has been hailed as a success by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

So much so that Education Lead Specialist with the IDB, Sabine Rieble-Aubourg, disclosed that the model was being replicated in other Caribbean and Latin American countries. She was speaking this morning at the closing session of the IDB’s most recent Administrative Mission to Barbados at the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training.

“The CBTF is the component that really put Barbados on the map.  It put the Ministry of Education on the shortlist at the IDB’s Superheroes of Development Contest held in Washington DC in October, this year, and Barbados was one of the finalists.  It was a very big moment. It has been a project of continuous improvement.  It has been exported to other countries like the Dominican Republic, Panama and Trinidad and Tobago. So really, Barbados is here at the forefront,” she stated.
