MOE collaborates with WORC to increase employment pathways for Caymanians

Hin Juliana O’Connor-Connolly

The Ministry of Education (MoE) announces its recent collaboration with Workforce Opportunities and Residency Cayman (WORC) to build clearer employment pathways for Caymanians. 

As part of the new initiative, the MoE Scholarship Secretariat Unit will encourage Education Council Scholarship recipients preparing to enter the job market to register with WORC as a job placement and further training option. 

“Here in the Scholarship Secretariat Unit, we provide students with extensive career guidance. However, we are continuously searching for new ways to enhance our support to our students. WORC has a programme to assist Caymanian job seekers in pursuing jobs and preparing for future careers. We encourage our graduates to register with them and take advantage of an opportunity to further develop their skillset and to connect with potential employers,” remarked Dr. Nicole Thompson, Acting Manager of the Ministry’s Scholarship Secretariat Unit.

Ministry for Education, Honourable Juliana O’Connor-Connolly, expressed her satisfaction with the new partnership. “Our youth are the future leaders of these Cayman Islands. So I welcome partnerships such as these that empower our young people to become productive members of the workforce, actively contributing to nation-building and economic development,” the Education Minister said.

“The improvements we have made to scholarships over the past two years must be matched with Caymanians returning to take up their place within the local economy and I therefore also encourage all of our students to take advantage of the services that the WORC has to offer in connecting them to employment.” 

Jobseekers may register online at www.worc.ky
