SOME BARBADOS COMMUNITY College (BCC) students will soon get a taste of the world of work.
The Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation and the Rotary Club of Barbados South have partnered once again for the fifth cycle of the Classroom to Boardroom (C2B) initiative which will offer a week of training to 31 students this year.
Chief executive officer of Entrepreneurship in Action and programme facilitator, Derek Browne told the media that the initiative was designed to be life changing by exposing participants to new experiences.
“It’s about taking students from the classroom into the board, working on real business challenges that are facing the business and not theoretical [work],” he said, during the programme’s launch at the Massy Training Facility in Coles Building, Bay Street on Monday.
