BARBADIAN STUDENTS GRADUATE WITH WEBSITE & APP BUILDING SKILLS
12 young Barbadians have skills to carry them forward into the world of work thanks to a pilot project with the Caribbean Science Foundation (CSF) in conjunction with Scotiabank and the Bridgetown US Embassy.
Daneilia De Silva is the lead assistant with the Foundation, she explained the goal is to ensure the graduates have the necessary competencies to get their foot through the door for developing sites and apps;-
Ms DeSilva says the course improved the participants in other areas which are not necessarily part of the programme yet nevertheless essential to carry forward as a real life skill outside of the project;-
Founder of the CSF, Dr Cardinal Warde, was elated with the results of the collaboration and its performance.
He noted even though homework may have seemed daunting for the teenagers, they still persevered and created a successful debut graduation;-
The Bridgetown US Embassy, Scotiabank and the CSF are looking to host a similar endeavour in September this year.
