The HEART Trust National Training Agency (HEART Trust/NTA) works to build a trained, qualified and globally competitive Jamaican workforce to meet the demands and challenges of globalization. HEART Trust NTA is the national body with the responsibility for assessment and certification of the Jamaican workforce.

HEART has entered into an MOU with JSIF in 2006 to provide skills and vocational training to community members in the inner city communities that are being assisted under the JSIF Inner City Basic Services (ICBSP) project. The objective of the ICBSP is to improve the quality of life for the urban dwellers of twelve inner city communities, through improved basic infrastructure, access to financial services, enhancement of public safety, and improved community capacity to participate effectively in the community development process.
