Second ‘Tech Education’ Forum To Be Held

May 9, 2017

Former Bermuda Technical Institute graduates, at the forefront of the revival of technical and vocational education in local schools, are putting the emphasis on 21st century trends when they stage their second forum on May 17th at the St Paul Centennial Hall in Hamilton at 7.00pm.

Bermuda Technical Institute Alumni [BTIA] spokesperson Rick Richardson says those attending will hear from Tech School Alums who are leaders in the field.

The Forum will also review best practices from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and other noted systems in European jurisdictions.

The BTIA grads will give an update on initiatives “designed to prevent young Bermudian men from falling through the cracks,” and the organisation said that parents of young men are urged to attend.

    Well done BTIA. Keep at it. We need technical education to be brought back to our public schools. We also need education for the academically gifted and artistically talented students in our midst.
