Project Update

The first quarter of 2014 witnessed a frenetic pace of activities as Cohort 2 participants travelled to Central America and North America for their third and fourth modules, respectively.   Even as the group now known as the Historic, Exceptional Cohort 2 explored Belize's unique model of utilising contracted Chief Executive Officers (CEOS) to manage ministries and the efficacy of the CEO Caucus which is chaired by Cohort 1 Alumnae Audrey Wallace, the Call for Applications for Cohort 3 was issued.  This is particularly noteworthy since it will be the final cohort which targets Permanent Secretaries and officers of equivalent rank.  The new cohort will be launched in Grenada on June 16th, and the deadline for submission of applications is April 4th.   Click here to read more >>

Promoting Regional Integration and Human Resource Development

To be able to lead tomorrow, one has to learn today.  Recognising this fact, the Caribbean Leadership Project (CLP), in collaboration with the Management Institute for National Development (MIND) and the Cave Hill School of Business/The University of the West Indies (CHSB/UWI), recently delivered a workshop on: Adult Learning in the Public Service Workplace.  The five-day workshop was delivered across two cohorts: one in Jamaica at the MIND Kingston Campus (February 10th – 14th, 2014) and the other in Barbados at CHSB/UWI Campus (March 17th – 21st, 2014).

The Belize National Youth Apprenticeship Program

During the third module of the CLP's Leadership Development Programme that was held in Belize in January, Cohort 2 participants discovered the significant impact the National Youth Apprenticeship Program has had on the reduction of crime in that country, through its focus on the on the development, education and employment of at-risk youth. Since its establishment in 2010 under the administration of the Honourable Patrick Faber, Minister of Education, Youth and Sports (Government of Belize), hundreds of high school drop-outs and single mothers between the ages of 16 and 29 years have benefited from this programme which has facilitated their self-development outside of a classroom setting, making them competitive and marketable on the job market.
