GOVERNMENT’S TRAINING ADMINISTRATION DIVISION (TAD) has taken a technological leap that will make training and educational opportunities more easily accessible to public servants.

The training department for the public service yesterday launched a website and mobile application, and also introduced the virtual classroom, as it announced the adoption of Internet-based learning technologies to mark its 50th anniversary.

Permanent secretaries from various ministries, as well as staff of the division, were at Hilton Barbados for the launch, labelled Chapter 50: Entering The E-Environment.

Deputy principal training officer Fay-Marie Browne said the website would allow civil servants to view and access services, as well as to conduct business with the Division. In addition, the site would facilitate the application processes for public servants’ subscription to training courses, study and training leave. She anticipated the virtual classroom would widen the TAD’s reach of public officers wanting to access learning opportunities.
