What we do (Who we are)
The Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (ZIMDEF) was established in terms of section 23 of the Manpower Planning and Development Act 36 of 1984 (now revised Manpower Planning and Development Act, Chapter 28:02 of 1996).
The broad objective of ZIMDEF is to finance the development of critical and highly skilled manpower through a 1% Training Levy paid by registered companies in Zimbabwe.
ZIMDEF is vested in the Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, who is the Trustee of the Fund. ZIMDEF is administered by the Chief Executive Officer in accordance with the Minister’s directions as advised by the National Manpower Advisory Council (NAMACO).
