Cayman Islands Red Sail bids goodbye to students

CIFEC Red Sail PRINTRed Sail Sports said goodbye to students on Thursday (24 March 2016) who had been with the company as interns since the previous September.

The youngsters were taking part in the Year 12 Internship Programme, which is designed to provide unpaid work placement opportunities for students attending Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC).

Red Sail Sports offered internships in different locations across Grand Cayman in positions including scuba diving, watersports, working with catamarans, and the spa. Managers and mentors within the departments provided ongoing feedback to the young people throughout the programme.

The students who took part in the internship with Red Sail Sports were Tatyana Bodden who worked in the spa, Lej Battiste and Tyler Watler in the dive department, and Nicholas Ebanks in the catamaran department.

“In most cases, the result is a notable increase in workplace skills and confidence,” said Beth Hiryok, training manager with Red Sail Sports. “It has been a pleasure to work with these students and watch them grow over the course of the year. The partnership between the employers, parents, Career Services and CIFEC staff truly does make a difference in these students’ lives.”

Ms Hiryok presented the students with certificates to mark the end of the internship programme at a small ceremony at CIFEC.
