As part of a review into the Isle of Man Education and Training functions, the Department of Education Sport and Culture seek your views on policy principles around the provision of support for vocational training. The responses to this consultation will be used to inform the policy required to develop a new proposed Vocational Training Assistance Scheme (VTAS).

The principal purpose of providing financial assistance under the VTAS is to develop the skills of the Island's workforce in order to stimulate wider economic benefits (revenues, jobs, profits, expenditure in the local economy) and associated fiscal benefits (direct and indirect taxes) which are far in excess of the cost of the support provided.

Why your views matter

To gather information regarding the potential future use and administration of the scheme with a view to stimulate growth in the Isle of Man economy.
