The Turks and Caicos Civil Service is pleased to have partnered with the Clement Howell High School on hosting a Career Day at the Gustavus Lightbourne Sports Complex in Providenciales on Thursday May 4th, 2017.
The event which was held to assist 3rd Formers in gaining a better understanding of the careers available ahead of selecting their subject areas of concentration for 4th and 5th Form, saw attendance from various areas across government including the Office of the Deputy Governor's Human Resource Directorate, the Attorney Generals Chambers and Office of Public Prosecutions, Customs Department, Dental Department, Sports Department, Police, Culture and Education Departments.
During the course of the day the students were provided with motivational speeches by Deputy Governor, Her Excellency Anya Williams and members of the civil service. In addition, students were provided with advice on which subject areas would prepare them for careers in various areas.
Commenting on the program of activities Deputy Governor Anya Williams said: "It was a pleasure for the civil service to participate in the Clement Howell High School Career Day; to share insight on the various careers that are available in Government and the steps that must be taken in order to prepare for these positions.
We encouraged the students to remain focused and to strive to do well. Reminding them that we live in a competitive society and that in order to succeed they must set a path towards prosperity which could be done by ensuring that at a very young age they made the right choices that would lead them in the correct paths.
As the future leaders of the Turks and Caicos Islands, we encouraged them to do well in their studies which would provide them with access to scholarships and that the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College should be chosen as their next step before seeking to enter the workforce.
We congratulate the staff and students on a successful Career Day and would like to thank them for providing us with an opportunity to make such a contribution."
