TRAINING REVOLVING FUND FOR PUBLIC SERVICE

The Government considers the development of its Human Resource a priority area and a key strategy toward National Development.

Vision 2030, the blue print for the Country’s long-term development envisions a globally competitive and adaptive human resource base that will contribute significantly to the economic, social, and political pillars that are the foundation of national development.

This, therefore, calls for well-trained, efficient, and motivated public service personnel equipped with the appropriate skills and competencies acquired through training and education.

In this regard, the Government, through the Ministry of Public Service and Gender (MPSG) has established the Training Revolving Fund (TRF) for public servants including, teachers, and persons involved in public teaching service from which, they will borrow funds for professional self-development.

In this regard, the Ministry has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (Mold) with the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) to facilitate access and administer the Fund on behalf of Government.

The purpose of this Circular is to inform all TSC employees that they can access the facility and sponsor themselves for training in the relevant professional fields.

Attached please find: the Eligibility criteria including, the loan Application Requirements, Funding and Application process.

More information may be obtained from “Guidelines for the Administration of Training Resolving Fund ITRF) for the Public Service” online.
