Applications are now being accepted
for the next Passport2Success group, scheduled to begin Monday, 2 May.
Spaces are limited, so applicants
are urged to submit forms well in advance of the 7 April deadline.
Passport2Success is a free
programme for 17- to 20-year-old Caymanians who are recent high school
graduates and have not yet found suitable employment.
Wellness Centre Director and
Programme Facilitator Shannon Seymour said applicants do not need high school
qualifications or work experience. However, they must be committed, willing to
attend every day and have a desire to improve their skills.
The Passport2Success Programme is
co-sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Training and Employment, CML
Offshore Recruitment, Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Ltd and LIME Communications.
The 12-week programme is designed
to provide training to help young Caymanians succeed in the workplace.
Participants are given passports,
to which stamps are added as they successfully complete programme and personal
Each stamp tells a potential
employer that the holder is skilled in a particular area. The more stamps
collected, the more employable the individual becomes.
Participants are required to
participate in all activities, including daily lessons, group projects and
community industry site visits, and in a two-week job placement with organisations
related to participants’ areas of interest.
Participants also must engage in a
week-long community-service project. Candidates earn a weekly stipend that must
be earned by meeting programme criteria.
Passport2Success emphasises adult
