The Occupational Skills Training Project (nicknamed JENNÈS), aims to empower the Youth and Women of Saint Lucia, by offering fully funded vocational programmes designed to increase participants' skills and marketability.
This Project is a joint collaboration by The Taiwan Embassy of Saint Lucia, ICDF Taiwan, The Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, and The Government of Saint Lucia.
The Occupational Skills Training Project launched with a virtual orientation ceremony on Friday, February 11th 2022 at 10am.
One hundred and thirty-four participants enrolled in the vocational programmes with 101 attending the orientation exercise.
The participants got the opportunity to learn about their programmes, receive demonstrations on accessing and navigating the online learning platform, and also had some of their queries answered towards the latter half of the session.
On Monday February 14th, participants attended a two week Digital Literacy for Professionals training workshop before embarking on their studies for the coming three months. Learning delivery amongst courses is either online, face-to-face, or a combination of the two (blended). It is dependent upon the selected programme.
Designed specifically for women and youth start-up entrepreneurs, this programme offers seminars and workshops to aid in the growth of knowledge needed to handle entrepreneurial projects.Learn More
