Civil servants gaining degrees

Finding time to further your education while working full time and maintaining a family can prove difficult. The Civil Service College of the Cayman Islands is aware of these challenges.

This commitment to removing barriers to learning recently resulted in the launch of a new approach to learning for the staff members of the Cayman Islands Fire Service, who had previously found it difficult to participate in classes off site offered by the college.

Accordingly the college arranged for two classes to be taught at the George Town Fire stations. On 4 September, members of the Cayman Islands’ Fire Department, the Immigration Department, Customs Department and Department of Investment and Commerce began this journey.

The two classes being offered this semester include: Introduction to Leadership & Teamwork, as well as Public Speaking. Both sessions are a part of the associate’s degree in public administration.

The on-site classes will be added to the credits students had already received by earning their ILM Endorsed Leadership & Management certificate in December 2011.
