WorldSkills Barbados Juniors Future Skills Camp

The TVET Council (TVETC), through the WorldSkills Barbados (WSB) Programme, will host its first WorldSkills Barbados Juniors (WSBJ) Future Skills Camp online, from September 6 – 10, 2021.  

The five-day camp is aimed at students ages 14 -18 and is being held this year as an alternative to the second biennial WorldSkills Barbados Juniors (WSBJ) Competition which was scheduled to take place in November 2021 but has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Future Skills Camp will equip participating students with knowledge and skills in five areas: 3D Digital Game Art, Aerial Robotics (Drone Operating), Building Information Modelling (BIM), Mobile Applications Development and Internet of Things.  

The registration period for the camp runs from August 22 – 29, 2021 and the registration fee is Bds$100.00 per student.
