(PRESS RELEASE) — To augment the public facility maintenance efforts of the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Empowerment, Youth Development, Sports, Culture and Local Government (MOST), six Local Government Council
employees successfully completed a plumbing skills maintenance programme at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.

At a ceremony on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 the Council workers were handed certificates to recognize their accomplishments.

Deputy Permanent Secretary Lenita Joseph commended the workers for their efforts.

“I am really pleased to be standing here today to congratulate you on finishing the programme. You have my support and commitment and we will continue to find that initiative to help build the vocational skills of Local Government employees,” Joseph said.


The participants were very thankful for being given this opportunity.

“I started a course before but in this course I learnt a lot. I want to thank the Ministry for giving me this
opportunity,” one participant said.

The Research Unit of the Ministry undertook a ‘National Public Standpipe Facility Assessment Exercise’ from 2016 to 2017. One of the recommendations was to get Council employees certified in the trade of plumbing.
