(ZIZ News) – The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) has announced new programmes that will focus on emerging and developing sectors.
CFBC President, Dr. Kelvin Daly said later this year the college will be working with the Taiwanese Government on a Solar Technology Course.
He said, “Beginning this fall, CFBC in partnership with Taiwan ICDF will launch the first every programme in solar energy technology. This programme will not only have the capacity to train our own students but will serve as a centre of excellence for the entire Caribbean.”
He said in about a year, the college will partner with the OECS member countries in a network project to host a Centre of Excellence for Tourism event and festival managements, complete with a virtual classroom.
“This virtual classroom will allow our students to access in real time programmes that are being taught in other member territories. For example, the BVI has been selected to specialize in baking and pastries, Anguilla in wines, and Antigua in high-end tourism,” Dr. Daly explained.
He said as the economy has become centred on tourism and other components of the service sector students must be trained to take advantage of this new thrust or be left behind.
