The social issue
Local research has shown that the majority of high school graduates in the Cayman Islands do not meet the enhanced basic skill standard, which includes: enhanced literacy, effective communication, problem solving and working in teams. Increasingly entry level positions in the workforce require higher levels of education.
The government has identified this as a major issue and has introduced Passport2Success, a National Employment Passport Programme, as a remedial measure.
Passport2Success relies on the participation of employers to provide opportunities to young people with the desire to improve themselves.
