Vocational training and skilled labour are some of today’s buzz words when it comes to the issue of employment.
However questions surrounding available resources to train Caymanians in these trades remain unanswered.
Inmate at Northward Tyrone Ebanks said he has high praises for their own vocational training programme but wishes a similar form of training was available outside the prison.
“The foreigners that come here to get the job they’re already skilled because of programmes like this, it could turn out more skilled people but you don’t have to come to jail to do it if you had a national programme like this on the street,” Mr. Ebanks explained.
Cayman 27’s Mario Grey journeyed to Northward to speak with the men and has this report.
