Three graduates from the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, who are part of the Sandals Resorts International Overseas Internship Programme in Saint Lucia, have been making waves in Antigua, where they are working hard at carving out an exciting career in the hospitality sector.
Yohan Henry, Teres Edwards and Michaela Edwards are all beneficiaries of the Overseas Internship Programme, a unique, cutting-edge collaboration between Sandals and the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, and they are delighted to be reaping the benefits of the doors Sandals has opened for them through its training.
The Sandals overseas and internship programme offers young Saint Lucians the opportunity to experience hands-on training in tourism and hospitality, while visiting and living in another country for six months, and to participate in an apprenticeship programme at a Sandals resort outside of Saint Lucia.
The young Saint Lucian professionals are urging their peers to value the training opportunities, which ultimately will stand them in better stead to pursue their dreams and give them the competitive advantage for placement within the industry. ¤
