ITC's are funded both through industry and government. Industry Training Committees are established in the following industries in the Territory: Fishing; Construction; Tourism; Local Government; Retail, and Automotive Another Industry Training Committee called the Metal and Engineering Industries Training Committee (MEITC) represents a number of industries (in the southern region) rather than a specific industry. Hence, it is regarded as a regional committee and is therefore outside the framework of the National Industry Training Committee Network. The Division provided supportive services to all Industry Training Committees during the year. Services included finance, advice on training development and networking of information. A total of $91,300 was provided as financial assistance to the Industry Training Committees to support the following major categories of services: Operational Support $57,000 Training Development $24,000 Purchase of Equipment $10,300 $91,300 Tourism Management Industry Scholarships In 1986/87, four third year scholarships carrying cash awards of $4,000 continued, while six second year scholarships worth $3,500 were reaffirmed. Seven scholarships are in their final academic year in 1987 and if students are successful, Industry in the Territory will benefit as each student is committed to work within the Industry for a minimum of twelve months dependent upon job opportunities. It was decided that the present allocation of Industry Scholarships required review and it was agreed that no new Scholarships would be issued in 1986/87. Discussions through the Industry Training Committee Network is to take place to determine that a satisfactory management policy is adopted to ensure scholarship recipients and industry are fully committed to the principles of Scholarship Awards.
