(CNS Business): Year 12 students at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) will be able to take BTEC Level 3 in Business (equivalent to AP/A Levels) in September and the new CIFECDirector, Robyn Kyne, said that this will include visits to local employers. “We are now encouraging more employer visits by our students where they can demonstrate the employability skills in actual working environments they are developing here at CIFEC,” he said, following a recent tour of Butterfield Bank by a group of CIFEC students. The group were shown around the Treasury Dealing Department by Phil Turnbull, Manager Treasury Dealings, and watched real-time currency trades take place.
The students also met Human Resources and Marketing & Communications staff and discussed the key competencies and employability skills expected by today’s top employers, and also took part in a customer service teamwork training activity.
Business teacher Mark Slade said the staff at Butterfield were extremely helpful and friendly and treated the students as fellow professional workers.
Deborah Davidson, E-learning specialist at Butterfield said, “I thought the student’s questions were very good and showed the students were engaged and learning, which is what we are all about!”
