The overall aim of the NFP is to help alleviate qualitative and quantitative shortages of skilled manpower and to do so within the framework of sustainable capacity-building directed towards reducing poverty in developing countries.

The training must help the organization to develop its capacity. The applicants must be nominated by their employers and an application without the support of an employer will not be considered.

The NFP offers the following sub-programmes:
The NFP programme is offered every year
