Registration Opens for Grand Bahama’s Youth Environment Ambassadors program - Sep 26, 2016 - 6:05:44 AM

STB_YEA-small.jpg
Three years after it was launched as the training ground to help prepare junior high students in Grand Bahama to become ambassadors for the environment, the popular Youth Environment Ambassadors program opened for registration this week but with noticeable differences.

“There will be fewer participants but they will enjoy broader experiences,” explained YEA Administrator Rashema Ingraham. “In the past, we have accommodated 40 deserving students per 12-week series. While that was great, the high number made travel to other islands to experience what is special about their environment unrealistic so this year we aim to limit the number to 20 students but work toward opportunities for those participants to travel to explore and study the land and marine environment in at least two of the Family Islands...”

GBPA/ ItelBPO Partnership building Freeport’s ICT Industry - Aug 28, 2016 - 11:56:30 AM

scaled.ccei_group.jpg
Thursday, 25th August, 2016 – Freeport Grand Bahama - As the new school year gets underway in a few days, hundreds of 12th graders on Grand Bahama will have fresh opportunities to effectively prepare themselves for either higher education, or post-graduation employment opportunities; owing to a new skills based training initiative created to support Grand Bahama’s recently established Call Center Industry.

In May of this year, officials of The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Limited (GBPA) and Island Outsourcers/itelBPO Solutions, partnered to develop and introduce the Contact Center Education Initiative (CCEI). The program is geared toward equipping graduates with meaningful results, driven by enhanced employability skills to support the island’s Contact Center sector, but will also prove as an asset to every local employer.

“Several years ago, GBPA commissioned a detailed Contact Center feasibility study to determine Grand Bahama’s viability as a nearshore call center destination. Following extremely favorable feedback, we then identified the industry as a ‘low lying fruit’ for Freeport; one that could quickly be developed, given the city’s infrastructure, literacy and language skills,  as well as other factors,” explained Ian Rolle, GBPA President.
