The value of the Skills Training Empowerment Programme (STEP) should not just be measured in dollars and cents spent by the government, but it must also include the money saved by the government from unemployment benefits, direct social assistance and reduced criminal activities.The point was made by STEP officials during the Wednesday, November 13 edition of the radio and television programme “Working for You.” The appearance was one activity in a series of events this week to mark the second anniversary of the STEP.
According to its website “STEP seeks to empower participants by providing training to assist in the development of the requisite human resource capabilities and entrepreneurial skills, which will facilitate participants’ smooth integration into the workforce.”
