17 Students To Graduate: New England Institute

April 27, 2015

17 students will be graduating on May 3rd from the New England Institute of Technology [NEIT] thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] signed between NEIT and the Department of Workforce Development.

The students will be graduating in various courses – from Information Technology [Cyber Security] to Occupational Therapy Technology, to Auto Body, among many others.

The majority of these students received sponsorship from the Department of Workforce Development as well as financial awards from NEIT.

The general intent of the MOU is for both organizations to cooperate in education and training initiatives which will further develop the skilled labour force of Bermuda through developing and accessing educational programs.

NEIT has been working with the Bermuda Government for almost 15 years. Additionally, NEIT instructors have been offering short technical education training sessions in Bermuda on a ‘fee for service’ basis.

“The National Apprenticeship System is a vital component of the Island’s workforce development strategy,” explained the Minister of Home Affairs Michael Fahy.

“A need for training in the following areas of occupation was identified: air conditioning technology, auto collision repair, automotive technology, carpentry, marine mechanics, electrical technology, construction, electronics, and plumbing technology.

“NEIT has been working collaboratively with the Department to identify an appropriate offering of courses designed to meet the social and economic development needs of Bermuda, even making changes to its curriculums in order to enhance the educational experience and relevance to Bermuda’s business environment.

“I wish to congratulate all of the recipients for their hard work and perseverance and thank NEIT for working with us for the betterment of Bermuda’s workforce.”

Mark Seltzer, Director of International Admissions at NEIT said: “Our 75th commencement will be the highlight for another fine group of Bermudians who are joining a long tradition of hundreds of NEIT graduates from the island.

“This year is even more special for us as Bermuda students are once again breaking new ground as being the first from the island to receive the following degrees from NEIT: an Associate in Science Degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, and a Master of Science Degree in Information Technology.

“NEIT is proud to be part of a strong working partnership with the Government of Bermuda’s Ministry of Home Affairs through Workforce Development. NEIT’s relationship with Bermuda has never been stronger.

“We are currently working on a new initiative with Bermuda College, a long and valued partner of ours which will strengthen the opportunities for Bermudians far into the future.”

    Do we really need to spend $25Million dollars per year on the “WHITE ELEPHANT”the Bermuda college.
    With that kinda money we could support more children than being born in Bermuda each year for the Education that is needed after high School.

  5. Why? says:

    Congrats to all the students, but…. Why are we paying high US College tuition when we have much cheaper options in the UK and EU?
