The Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology (SJPI) was celebrated as the top institute for vocational and technical excellence in Barbados during a special unveiling ceremony to mark its 50th anniversary on Thursday.

Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw said the training facility was well equipped to teach students of the 21st century about the skills needed to meet the demands of the workplace now and into the future.

Addressing the audience at the ceremony held at the Wildey, St Michael institution, Bradshaw said “studies in renewable energy, fibre optics, computer numerical control, 3D printing, drone technology and maintenance, hybrid and electric powered vehicles, smart agriculture and garment technology are just a few of the exciting offerings which this institute is able to offer as a progressive 21st century vocational institution in the Caribbean”.

“We have sought to leverage the tradition of excellence while charting a new path forward in the 21st century with this institute.” (SB)
