With the recent launch of Barbados Community Certificate in Nursing Auxiliary Studies (NAS) Barbados will soon have a cadre of trained nursing auxiliaries who will be able to meet the demand for public and private care of the older adult, with a novel focus on hospitality.
Sagicor sponsored the equipment and retrofitted the NAS Experiential Laboratory located in the Barbados Language Centre of the BCC. The location’s design facilitates an interactive educational process which allows students to practice and showcase their skills in a real-life setting, under the observation of their tutors and specialist trainers via in-camera sessions. This will allow for a more hands-on training with real time learning. The finance company was also pivotal in the development of the course syllabus in association with the planning team of the BCC. Sagicor also sponsored two BCC faculty to visit cutting edge Senior care communities in Canada to observe new and current best practices.
