Strengthening Skills Training

I feel that there is hope and that I’m actually getting somewhere in life right now. It’s good because I know I have some type of support and somewhere I can go and we need more programs like that. I feel like my future is more secure.

Victoria Major, Trainee

Our skills training initiative brings hope to unemployed Bahamians and permanent residents between the ages of 15 and 29 who do not have a high school diploma. These young people may have only a high school leaving certificate and a few BJCs/BGCSEs. They might be unmotivated, discouraged and in need of a second chance to receive important skills that will enhance their employment prospects.

The courses are moderated by vendors and businesses that specialize in four major disciplines:
Soft Skills Development; Numeracy and Literacy Skills Development; Hospitality and Retail Training and Technical Trades Development.

To enroll in the skills straining program, visit our mobile enrollment sessions which are held in various communities throughout New Providence (see “Upcoming Events” on the home page) or follow the instructions in the infographic below to register through the Department of Labour’s Public Employment Services website.
