ITVET students show and tell what they’ve learnt

The newly renovated ITVET in Belize City was recently inaugurated and its students wasted no time in taking advantage of the many resources made available to them by the school’s administration.  Today the institute held an open house showcasing its curricula at work.  Kenroy Ellis, the Belize District Manager for ITVET says much planning went into making the day an overall success.

“It was a lot of planning and we had to get different teams together.  There are different aspects of the open house that we wanted to exhibit. Certainly the programs were of key interest to us and because we wanted to ensure that once somebody comes here today the trainees would have been in high gear to display and also to explain the projects that they have completed throughout the year.”

“We have on this block the hotel room, we have the new Le Palate French Caribbean Restaurant.  We have the cosmetology program upstairs and we have the computer repair program.  We also have on the other block, we have the AutoCAD program and all over to the workshop block we have the other trades which include A/C and refrigeration repair, the auto body program, the electrical installation program.”

“Speak to us a bit about the importance of this particular exercise in terms of preparing the students of ITVET for the world of work.”

“As I mentioned this morning when you, a parent for example, get a report card all they see is an A, B, or a C or D but in this case now you are able to come and see your child actually perform or really see what he has done throughout the year and in the case of industry you also have the opportunity if you want to hire on the spot because you are here to look and see and certify the work of the trainees that they have done. So it’s very important, critical for both parties to come and see what has taken place; what they have learned over the period.”

The first of its kind exhibit saw the participation of several Belize City primary and high schools and the hosts of the open house were at their best touring visitors and explaining the different displays.
