Nominations being accepted to recognize Caymanians in vocational and technical careers.
Nominations for VoTech Stars – the workforce development programme promoting Caymanians who are shining in technical and vocational careers, are now being accepted. Created just over a year ago – you have probably already seen the first six VoTech Stars, featured on billboards all over the Cayman Islands – VoTech stars highlights six different Caymanians as they talk about their chosen career, why they are passionate about it, and their recommendations to others who are thinking of entering it.
The first six VoTech Stars represented a wide spectrum including a firefighter, a diving technician, an AC technician, and a Heavy Equipment operator, but nominations and not limited to these, can come from any Caymanian you know who really excels in the technical and vocational career they have chosen work – and who is passionate about telling others about it.
Each of the six VoTech Star will be featured in a video to discuss their job, why they love it, the challenges they face and offer advice for Caymanians who may wish to pursue the field.
Categories include Automotive and Mechanical, Computer Services, Construction and Architecture, Cosmetology, Culinary services, Diving and watersports, first responder, AC, plumbing and electrical, Legal/office assistants/ inspectors, Medical and nursing, and Technology. You can also nominate people in other areas of vocational and technical fields that are not listed above.
