Director of Labour, Robert Farquharson announced the launch of the Department of Labour’s ‘Labour On The Campus’ initiative aimed at high school graduates.
At a press event Farquharson told reporters, “its a new initiative for 2023 by the Department of Labour. One of the other lessons we learned from Labour On The Blocks is that many of the young people coming out of high school were not prepared to enter the labour market. So we have partnered with the Ministry of Education, a number of government agencies, private organizations and we’re gonna launch what we call ‘Labour On The Campus’ where we will go into the high schools, we’ll identify those ten and eleven graders who will know will not qualify to graduate with a diploma, we’ll steer them in the direction of BTVI, the National Training Agency, so when the come out of high school they’ll be certified to work in different areas. ”
