The On-the-Job Training Programme (OJTP) aims to forge strategic alliances with private and public sector employers, creating job opportunities for young nationals. Private sector training providers are reimbursed 60% of the stipend paid to trainees. For public sector training providers and NGOs, trainees’ stipends are covered in full by the OJT Programme.

3. FACILITATE SITE VISITS
The On-the-Job Training Programme (OJTP) will conduct a due diligence site visit to view your office, including where you will host the requested trainees. Private sector training providers must produce original registration documents so that copies can be certified (includes certificate of incorporation, NIB, BIR and VAT registration and where applicable organisational chart, vision & mission statements and policy manual). Private sector providers will subsequently be visited by an OSHA officer who will perform an inspection and give notice of any areas of nonconformance that must be rectified before OSHA approval.
Final recommendation and approval rest with the Director of the OJTP.
