Abstract: ABSTRACT Reforms to Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) have been widespread in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and have culminated in the creation of national training authorities, which are financially supported by various forms of employer based levy systems. Such levies have been reported to be problematic in most countries and the Gambia being no exception is currently engulfed in similar dilemma. The purpose of this study is to examine key motivational and de-motivating factors influencing employer contribution to the National Education and Technical Training Levy (NETTL) in the Gambia. A pilot study to test questionnaire item reliability coefficient using Cronbach’s alpha (α) value was carried out. The reliability coefficient values for the standardized items of the motivational factors (independent variable), de-motivating factors (independent variable) and employer contribution dimensions (dependent variable) were 0.924, 0.827 and 0.766 respectively. Validity of the question items were ensured through item content review by an expert in the field. The research results are presented in descriptive and inferential statistics. Both One-way ANOVA and Linear Regression analysis (Stepwise) were used during the analytical stage. Amongst the key research findings include (a) prior consultation during levy policy development and levy put in closed account (only accessible for training use) would motivate limited liability businesses to contribute to the levy. (b) a levy that can ensure a secure and sustainable means of funding skills development, would encourage businesses to willingly contribute to the levy. (c) managing directors of businesses were de-motivated and thus not willing to contribute to the levy because they perceived that it was purely of interest to government. (d) limited liability businesses would be only motivated to voluntarily contribute to the levy if a levy exemption policy is put in place. (e) limited liability businesses showed greater concern on accountability and transparency of the levy system than the Others businesses.
