Youth benefit from internationally-certified ICT training

Eleven young men and women are now internationally certified in the use of information and communications technology (ICT) in the hospitality sector.

The participants successfully completed the ICT Training in Hospitality, organized by the Ministry of Education, the Education Enhancement through Information and Communication Technology Programme, which was facilitated by the Caribbean Institute of International Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts. The five-month programme started in September.

Education Minister Dr. Robert Lewis said the programme promotes ICT education, not just in schools, but in the wider community. He said one of the most impressive aspects of the ICT Training in Hospitality is its international recognition.

The training has been embraced by key members of the hospitality sector. Executive Vice President of the St. Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association, Noorani Azeez, said ICT has become the key factor in providing tourism enterprises with a competitive edge. He reminded the graduates that the excellence of St. Lucia’s tourism product will be determined by the skill, expertise and knowledge of the people who deliver that service.

Tanya Warner received the award for most outstanding student.

The course was conducted by the Caribbean Institute of International Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts and equipped participants with the knowledge and skills to integrate ICT into hospitality concepts.

The graduates come from the National Learning and Enrichment Unit (NELP), the Centre for Adolescent Renewal and Education (CARE), the National Skills Development Centre (NSDC) and the Hospitality Section of the Division of Technical Education and Management Studies (DTEMS), Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.
