Education Minister Santia Bradshaw believes the offerings of the Barbados Vocational Training Board (BVTB) have encouraged students to pursue higher learning at the various training centres for many years.
She stressed this today while officially opening the new multi-purpose classroom block at the C. Lomer Alleyne Training Centre at Sayes Court, Christ Church.
“The Barbados Vocational Training Board has groomed generations of well-rounded and civic-minded individuals, many of whom have become distinguished members of our society. Indeed, the BVTB has recognized that by encouraging our young people to pursue higher learning, they grow and develop into better and more productive members of our society.
“However, we believe that if this new classroom block can play even a small role in encouraging students at the facility to attend their classes and attain certification so that they may find worthwhile and rewarding employment, then it has done its part and all who have participated in being a part of it should be extremely proud of being in that room,” Minister Bradshaw said.
