| 24/04/2012

(CNS): While government has been adapting is work preparation course to assist different demographic groups the employment ministry is still continuing with the original course designed to get young people into work and keep them there. Passport2Success began its eighth cohort on Monday, 16 April at the International College of the Cayman Islands campus. The students, ages 17 to 20, will undertake classroom based learning and  engage in internships where they will receive first hand experience in a professional working environment. “We are hoping to improve upon the success rate that has been established by the former students,’ said Shannon Seymour of the Wellness Centre.

“Currently, the programme has a 90% completion rate by those who have started,” she added as she challenged the latest group to be the first group where everyone graduates at the end of the 12 weeks.

Rolston Anglin the education minister spoke about why younger members of society continue to find it difficult to enter the workforce.

“If you want change in your life, you must first work on changing yourself,” he told the students.  “Have a positive attitude, work harder, set your goals and achieve them.  If you do this, you will be successful not only in this course but in life.  Take advantage of this programme and give it your all. “
