National Training Council aims to provide training from “cradle to grave”

Employment Ministry officials said the newly launched National Training Council will focus on building skills in Cayman’s work force.

Research from the Inter-ministerial Committee on Employment identified a skills gap as a primary barrier to employment. The National Training Council said it will give employers and industry leaders an opportunity to help craft government initiatives aimed at bridging those gaps.

“One of the things that the National Training Council is trying to do is to bring all of these education, skills, and training opportunities under one overarching structure, to put in place a formal cradle to grave approach that is legislated, properly managed, and regulated,” said Senior Policy Advisor for Human Capital Development Phillip Scott.

The National Training Council is chaired by Education Chief Officer Christian Suckoo, and includes a variety of private sector organisations, government departments, as well as UCCI and ICCI representation.
