BTVI Workforce Readiness Certificate Programmes
The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI), through representation on a Ministry of Education & Technical & Vocational Institute Learning Recovery Taskforce, has developed a series of Workforce Readiness Certificate Programmes to serve as bridges for those high school students who, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, stopped attending classes or otherwise disengaged from their educational journey.
Dubbed, Smart Start #dontcountusout, the BTVI Workforce Readiness Certificate Programmes will hone basic literacy and numeracy skills within a trades learning environment. The programmes have begun in Grand Bahama and will be followed by New Providence. A roll out across several Family Islands is expected this summer and in Fall 2022, using a hybrid approach and integrating technology bridged across classroom and industry settings. A 30-hour service-learning, apprentice-type component will be incorporated in partnership with industry and business partners.
