The Barbados Vocational Training Board (BVTB) exhibit at the recently held World Skills competition at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic (SJPP) came in for high praise from those who passed through. This was due to the eye-catching towel-art designs of Housekeeping demonstrator, Shonnelle Gibbs and her team from the Housekeeping Class in booth number one, as well as the interactive exhibit in booth number two from the team from The Cosmetology class.

The complete BVTB exhibit consisted of three tents located in assigned areas of the SJPP- the first was a 20×20 exhibit which housed the Housekeeping exhibit together with a towel folding “have-a go” table, and literature from the Apprenticeship, Skills Training and Evening Programmes, the latter, manned by the Apprenticeship team. The second 15 x 15 tent housed the Cosmetology exhibit and the third 10 x 10 tent housed an exhibit from the Electrical Skills Training Class.

The towel-art Farm display, part of the Barbados Vocational Training Board’s Housekeeping skills exhibit at World Skills Barbados exhibition hosted by the TVET Council and held at the SJPP.

Ms Gibbs’ designs were diverse and showed the creativity and skills which can be expected from the BVTB graduates when they enter the workplace. The exhibition showcased several themes: a jungle theme; an underwater theme and a farm theme. As a part of the “Have-A-Go” section of the exhibit, visitors were given a chance to try their hands at folding towels. The exhibit was definitely worthy of the theme chosen for this module which read “Excellence is in the details!

A visitor receiving hands-on instruction in braiding in the Cosmetology exhibition booth from one of the students of the Barbados Vocational Training Board’s Cosmetology Course at the recently concluded World Skills Barbados exhibition hosted by the TVET Council and held at the SJPP.

The Cosmetology department’s booth coordinated by the demonstrator Wendy Bishop, was laid out like a salon with mannequins on which and her trainees showcased their acquired skills; they also gave live demonstrations of nail-art using their peers and some patrons as models. Visitors to this booth were able to test their skills at hair braiding. The trainees were enthusiastic about their booth and wooed passers-by with promises of polish changes and advice on hair maintenance. Information on the Apprenticeship Programme, the Skills Training and Evening programmes were readily explained by members of the Apprenticeship Programme team to visitors to the main booth. The Electrical Exhibit was mounted for the technically minded and showed a circuit board with cabling leading to a set of lights. It enabled demonstrator Mark Jones and his electrical course trainees to show how they would run cable and how the circuit board connects with everything to provide the correct flow of electricity.
