Since January of 2015 BTEC has taken its Job Preparedness Training on the road starting first in Belmopan and now completing our second cohort in beautiful Dangriga. BTEC extends its gratitude to its partners Ecumenical Junior College, Department of Youth Services, POWA, Women’s Department and the Ignacio Cacho Library for their unwavering support and contributions in making this training a reality. A total of 51 individuals from a wide cross-section of Dangriga’s residents completed the Pre-test in basic English, Computer and Typing of which 20 participants remained focused and actively engaged in order to graduate the three week job readiness program on April 8th 2015.
As the name implies, the Job Readiness program seeks to impart professional and career development expertise that will strengthen their employability skills. The program offers soft skills training along with front line telephone etiquette, customer service, and sales basics that can translate to individuals entering the Call Centres. Important to note is that 5 individuals have already obtained gainful employment and we expect the numbers to grow exponentially as we assist these individuals in attaining entry level employment and commencing their careers.
