Irving Wilson students seeking NVQs
STUDENTS AT THE Irving Wilson School are launching into unchartered waters.
Six of them are seeking National Vocational Qualifications in Nail Care at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic. The school caters to students who are hearing and visually impaired.
Principal Wendy Blackman, who was excited and nervous all at once for her students, was in the examination room giving moral support to the three who were being assessed earlier today. Three more will have their skills tested next week.
Blackman said the Nail Care programme was part of a thrust to diversify the curriculum and produce students with varied skill sets. (YB)
