Barbados: Students get hands-on work experience

Whether they return to school or move on to new frontiers, 16 students of the Parkinson Memorial Secondary School are now richer for the experience of their 2020 summer internships at various companies.

The students were divided among the Goddard Enterprises (GEL) subsidiary companies and covered a variety of interests – some, who were doing Business Studies, interned at the GEL head office while two students with interest in Visual Arts and Industrial Arts utilised their time at GEL Property Management.

Three students, who studied Home Economics, went to the three outlets of Marshall Trading to work in merchandising and customer service while another three Business Studies students found their place in the administration and IT departments of Caribbean Label Crafts.

One other Home Economics student went to the warehouse department of Terrific Tiles while another studying Busines Studies spent her six weeks in the administration department of Courtesy Garage.
