GIVE WORKERS SECOND CHANCE

Written by on November 12, 2018

[wordpress_file_upload]The Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology (SJPI) is being challenged to give retrenched workers a second chance for retraining and
retooling.

According to Senator the Hon. Lucille Moe, Minister of Education, Technological and Vocational Training (ag), this will then allow persons to attain a full certificate, diploma or vocational qualification by obtaining a specific set of skills.

“Government’s acceptance and endorsement of the SJPI’s mandate, which focuses on providing educational programming to meet the needs of industry, allows us to subscribe to an ideology that SJPI is the bedrock of our 018, the Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology delivered training to 1 686 students. An increase of almost 100 students over 2016-2017.

“The SJPI enrolled 932 students in full-time programs of which 609 were first years, 292 second years and 31 third years. This represented 695 males and 297 females. Included in this data were 17 students from across the region. Additionally, we enrolled 694 students in continuing education courses and programmes of which 414 were males and 280 females”.

Drakes also shared that the academic year projected for 518 students to be placed on job attachments, however he disclosed that only 410 were placed.
“This was attributed to the slow economic downturn that the country is grappling with currently. Nonetheless, our industry partners have been assuring us that the strengthening of this relationship will continue to benefit our students in the future,” he said.
