The Public Works Department (PWD) will kick off its inaugural skills competition among trainees in the Apprenticeship Training Programme at its North Sound Road location on Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13.
The aim of the competition is to showcase the skills of the students in the programme and create awareness about Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in the Cayman Islands.
Acting Director at the Public Works Department Troy Whorms stated that the skills competition will provide an opportunity for the dedicated trainees to show the skills that they have been developing to shape a better future for themselves. “Our apprenticeship training programme has grown to thirteen programmes since its inception in 2006 and we are fully accredited by City and Guilds London Institute. We want our young people to know that we have many options available for them to build careers in a number of areas so they can contribute to the development of our Islands”, he noted.
The skills competition will include electrical installation, carpentry, masonry as well air conditioning and refrigeration.
The PWD has received support from several private sector entities including Androgroup Limited, Phoenix Group, Arch and Godfrey (Cayman) Limited and Dart Enterprises Limited to host the event.
Interested members of the public can attend the competition sessions which run on both days from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
