College Offers New Dual Enrolment Programme

July 13, 2016

Bermuda College will welcome for the first time this Fall, 25 dual enrolment high school students into its new Certificate in Applied Technology programme.

The Certificate programme is modelled after the successful dual enrolment associate degree programme, which saw its first cohort of high schoolers graduate with both a high school diploma and associate degrees in Commencement ceremonies in May.

The College recently held orientation for about 40 dual enrolment students who will be entering the College on either a full-time or part-time basis for the Fall 2016 academic year.

The Certificate in Applied Technology programme was developed after joint consultation with the counsellors and teachers at both The Berkeley Institute and CedarBridge Academy and administrators and faculty of Bermuda College.

The students were evaluated for the pilot programme that will see them begin a foundational core of applied technology courses including Basic Safety; mathematics; Introduction to Construction Drawings; Introduction to Construction Technology & Trades; and more, while simultaneously satisfying their high school graduation requirement at their respective high schools. The group will be split into two cohorts at the College, and a dedicated advisor will assist them in navigating the two environments.

Bermuda College Recruitment Officer, Thaao Dill said of the new programme, “This is an incredibly important and excellent example of Bermuda College’s ability to satisfy our community’s educational needs.

“This is what a community college is for; it’s what Bermuda College embraces, and we are eager to recruit and receive as many students as we can to offer these types of opportunities for continued student success.”

Dean of the Applied Sciences Department, Dr. Trescot Wilson agreed. “This is another step in the right direction to pique the interest of students when they are still at an impressionable age towards the vocational trades in Bermuda. We look forward to having them and helping them along their journey.”
